Crick, John: New Zealand. 2000, 2002
I'm a Songman Storyman, ‘lost in a Red tower (as my kids say), in the Motueka Valley. I create all my own material. I celebrate, use, what is around, within me. (Childhood, ancestor-lore, the natural world, fantasy...) I work and shape this. As my stories develop, I seek the universal in the everyday, the basis for all good stories. Professional tellings began in 1984, as John the Swag, archetype from my heritage. I travelled all around New Zealand and to New South Wales with shows. Heritage yarns and songs (gold etc.), seeded mine based on New Zealand character history. So it's grown from that.
