ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is a collection of our favorite Australian and Down Under folk songs. Some are funny. Some are poignant. We used these songs for the sound track for our Walkabout Down Under video. We made a pilgrimage to New Zealand, Tasmania, and mainland Australia to follow the Irish and Scots roots there. We fell in love with the music all over again and just had to record it. While we were in Sidney, we were making a video at Mrs. McQuarie's Chair when a group of Japanese tourists came by. We gave an impromptu performance for about 40 video cameras. Quite an experience.

The train ride through the deserts to Adelaide was an awesome ride with the kangaroos. The Barossa Valley vineyards are a visual and taste extravaganza.

Visiting the Port Arthur Transportation Prison in Tasmania was an eye opener with the many Scottish and Irish names. We earned a new and greater respect for what some of our forefathers experience.

In New Zealand, the number of streets and towns that have Irish and Scottish names is amazing. We got to see Christchurch before the last earthquake. We are so glad our memories of the city are untarnished by the destruction.

The music heritage and the Kangaroos, the Koalas and the Kiwis will always hold a special place in our hearts. Enjoy!!

"Shamrocks In The Wind" (AKA: John and Karol Diehnel) is a Celtic Folk Ballad Duo who travel nationwide performing traditional ballads, fun pub songs and lots of rolick'n sea songs, occasionally being joined by instrumentalists on fiddle, pipes, penny whistle and bodhran in both live performance and in the studio. As a Duo, John plays 12-string and 6-string guitars, Karol plays 5-string bass both amplified or acoustic.
