Garry Tooth sings "Foggy Dew" at Bowral Folk, Blues and Beyond 2008
I was born in Central Queensland and later moved to Brisbane. I started singing old bush ballads in the late 1950s and helped form the Moreton Bay Bushwackers. In 1960 three of us formed The Wayfarers and were employed at the Primitif Coffee Lounge.
In 1964 we were involved in setting up the Brisbane Folk Centre. From 1970 I was working as a singer in various restaurants around Sydney.

From 2000 until 2006 I sang at my own cafe The Whistlestop at Thirlmere. I have a passion for the story in the song and have developed a repertoire of Australian, Irish, English and Scottish folk songs.
