Australian Bush Ballads

by Marc Glasby


I have always been a great fan of the old Aussie bush ballads. I love to read Paterson and Lawson and I try to emulate their style in the ballads I write. I was lucky enough to travel Australia for a number of years and I feel very deeply about this beautiful but sometimes harsh country.


My spiritual home is the Pilbara in W.A. I am sure there may be more beautiful places but that part of Australia speaks to my heart like no other. My work is both factual and fictional but my over-riding passion is to write about the land that I care so much for.


This page combines the words I have written with the pictures I have taken on my travels. I hope you find something here to enjoy. This is a work in progress so please come back from time to time to see what is new.


I am very pleased to announce that one of my ballads has been picked up by well known Australian country singer, Graham Rodger. Graham has written the music and adjusted the words and come up with a great song that I am sure many people will love.


You can visit Graham's website at : The ballad Graham has recorded is 'The Eagle' and it is on his new album 'Territory Man'.
