Subject: RE: Rise Up Mudcat Songbook - Australia
I've just made a quick list of traditional songs, collected & re-popularised in the revival of the 50s/60s.

They were all published by the Bush Music Club in Singabout (1956-67)

Maggie May

Nine Miles from Gundagai

The Neumerella Shore - 1 2 pages The Neumerella Shore - 2

The Wild Colonial Boy

The Black Velvet Band & The Old Bark Hut also in Singabout 5(1) 1963

The Drover's Dream & Wild Rover both also in Singabout 3(1) 1958

Old Black Billy (written in 1938 but thought to be trad. when it was collected)

and a couple of other classics which strangely enough were not published in Singabout! - Moreton Bay & Reedy River lyrics & video of Chris Kempster singing
