Percustard Lyr/Chords Req: The 'Abercrombie Mountains' - Ben (7) RE: Lyr/Chords Req: The 'Abercrombie Mountains' - 25 Jun 02

HI all,

Abercrombie was a prominant figure in my neck of the 'bush'here is Australia. There's Abercrombie House (very imposing blue stone "castle"), Abercrombie Caves (where Ben Hall hid out for a while), The Abercrombie River (that flows,a few kms downstream, into the Lachlan River named after Governor Lachlan Macquarie and The Lachlan is the river fabled in songs such as The Lachlan Tigers and Streets of Forbes).


I am keen to track down the song, the tune , the history of "The Abercrombie Mountains (Kilgarry Mountains) Sir Fred...etal.


Forgive my ignorance but what was the "Folk Scare" and any leads on O'Lochlainn's works would be appreciated.
