Winter Night At Liffey

This music began as a response to Bob Brown's poem from the 1970s that he wrote after being woken by the silence of snow falling, when at his old home, Oura Oura, at Liffey, in Northern Tasmania. There is a piano version on our earlier CD, "Winter Night At Liffey" but this is an orchestrated version, opened with Bob reading his poem.

Music Tasmania acknowledges Tasmanian Aboriginal people as the traditional owners of this island, lutruwita (Tasmania). We pay our respects to elders past and present and acknowledge traditional peoples' connection to country. We respect the traditions and customs of the Aboriginal people of lutruwita, who remain the custodians of these lands.
