Subject: RE: Req/ADD: Give Me a Home Among the Gum Trees
Hello Rowan, We were moving in the same circles, I think. I lived in Warrandyte and before that Lilydale from 1963. I was born and raised in Thornbury. I was known for geting more than a little irritated about the re-naming of those dances too. I had a little-known Bush band called "Wallaby Stew". Anyway hello from a neighbour who's now gone bush. --as I sit here below a 1972 Nariel Creek poster featuring "The Original Bushwakers and Bullockies Bush Band" Funny-looking line-up it is too. (2 guitars, fiddle, tea-chest bass and a 130-year-old autoharp.)
Cheers, Joy
