Connecting Spirits - Songs of Remembrance - Rita Lindsay and Flo Bourke

 

A collection of new songs based on the experiences of Australian soldiers on the Western Front during World War One ~ written and performed by Rita Lindsay and Flo Bourke.

The album features acoustic guitars, electric guitars, piano, drums
Yidaki (didgeridoo), boomerangs, bass, hammond organ, mellotron, accordion, keyboards, highland pipes and vocals performed in English and Ngarrindjeri languages.

The album follows in the footsteps of the young Australian soldiers on their way to the Western Front in 1914 - 1918. Stories unfold of their excitement, their farewells, then the unexpected assault of trench warfare, the loss of innocence, leave, hospitals, death and demobilisation. The album seeks to capture as a moment in time each of the stages in these young men's lives.
