2007’s Attitude and Gratitude has the duo singing about war in the hopes of bringing peace; a cover of Eric Bogle’s “And the Band Played Waltzing Mathilda” about the cannon-foddering of brave Anzac soldiers at Gallipoli; a trance-folk version of “Green Grow the Rushes,” the tune our boys were singing when they went marching to Mexico in the 1840s; and “The Wounded Hussar,” a traditional about the death of cavalryman by a river’s edge. This is but part of an extensive repertoire of songs that have been hits for at least 500 years.
