In May of 2011 Derek Warfield and The Young Wolfe Tones completed an extensive musical tour of Australia including appearances at the world famous Australian National Folk Festival, to launch this new and exciting work. In June the CD was released in Ireland, America and the UK.

"Far Away in Australia" is a musical story of Ireland and Australia and the contributions and historical involvement of the Irish race in Australia. The ballads in Irish Traditional music are carefully chosen to reflect the many aspects of the literary, cultural, social and political that connect the two nations.

Kind Regards,
Derek Warfield
