Red Dirt - Red Heart tells a story of the Australian interior. Any history of Australia albeit very brief, must include the people who have inhabited this wonderful country for at least 40,000 years. This album goes on to tell the stories of two bushrangers, another about a beautiful town, a song about a loner, a recluse, and an escape artist (Goal that is), a snake and the spectacular Nullabour Desert. We have also included some of our great indigenous heroes in the hope that we can share their stories.
