Greening from Ear to Ear - Tam O’Shanter Tales

James Greening has composed an evocative suite of music inspired by the pristine beauty of Tasmania. The coastal community on Bass Strait, Tam O’Shanter, provided the ideal environment to compose a diverse suite aspiring to capture the hopes, fears and uncertainties uniquely expressed and yet shared by all.  

 Tam O’Shanter Tales is a journey into the haunting beauty of human struggle. At a point of deadlock James found inspiration in reading The Kite Runner.

He later learned of the settlement of Hazaran refugees in Tasmania, triggering him to set the kinetic rhythmic groove of Hazara as the centerpiece of the album. Closing the suite, Early Morning is about hope. That is, from the darkest night, a new dawn emerges.

It is dedicated to the mentors and elders of the Australian music scene John Pochee, Mike Nock, Judy Bailey, Sandy Evans, Miroslav Bukovsky, Allan Brown to name a substantial few and the late Jackie Orszaczky, Bernie McGann, Dave Addes and Kim Sanders who have left behind them a spirited legacy of live music performance.
