Burnside Album Details

O'Halloran, Michael, The Little Blue Bus

The Little Blue Bus is the debut album from Michael O’Halloran, celebrated Australian singer/songwriter and winner of three Dolphin awards for his contribution to children’s music. He taught primary school children for many years and generations of kids have grown up singing Mick’s songs. This 14 track collection of folk songs is filled with gorgeous harmonies, lilting fiddle, washes of dobro, sweet mandolin and banjo and tells the tales of life in Australia, from the desert to the ocean… From koalas to kangaroos… Special guests Matthew Green (Simone Felice, Missy Higgins) and Canadian songstress Tracy McNeil (Fireside Bellows) add to the high quality musicianship. The Little Blue Bus is a fantastic album for driving, dancing and sleepy time. Themes include wedge tailed eagles, friends from different countries and backgrounds, traveling around Australia, splashing in puddles, keeping the rivers clean, whale watching when you’re feeling sad and visiting magical lands in your dreams…
