Kiss Me Goodnight Sergeant Major. Indeed this may apply to bush workers particularly, because, owing to the nature of their occupation, they are inclined to be more ruminative and to turn things over and over in their mind. The second, 'The Banks of the Nile', seems not have been recorded in Australia; but a derivative ballad, 'The Banks of the Condamine' 'The Banks of Riverine' in some versionshas been recorded from Victoria to the Northern Territory. I left Australia in

The picture of Ned Kelly in the public mind is very different from the photograph of Kelly. African stories sometimes include trickster animals and spirits. With each new placement, the informant and his wife position the elf different poses and often gives him something to do. Some of them were very close to the Paterson versions and may well have been learned from print.

Further west, between Condobolin and White Cliffs, there was quite a lot of gum leaf playing. Quite unscientific often, but still an interesting sidelight on pastoral folklore. New York: David McKay, I suspect that Queensland is probably the great place for Speewa tales, but there were a lot in Western New South Wales too, and of course they're ideal for stringing together. So I got this Bach thing. This exhibition could well show first of all the spread of pastoral civilisation in Australia with pictures by amateur bush artists, for example, of bush life.

Quite apart from that, it seems to me that material folklore of the bush is possibly something that is neglected too. Except from good vacuum cleaners like John Meredith, who absorbed a lot of songs even from a relatively limited territory. As far as instruments were concerned, we had from time to time fiddlers, jews harp players, mouth organ players.

The native Australian song is much more ironic, much more sardonic than the American one. This was emphasized greatly by the informant as being a god send during a very hectic time of year. That doesn't necessarily mean that they are entirely devoid of quite archaic elements of folklore, as we realise now.

By the seventeenth century English presses were beginning to pour out ballad texts printed on broadsides see Broad side ballads.

Second, an English convict learnt an anti British Irish song and passed it on to his Australian son, and he in turn to his son. Together, they express a close relationship: man is regarded as part of nature, not fundamentally dissimilar to the mythic beings or to the animal species, all of which share a common life force.

London: Blackwood, Did they rise him as we rose him in the good old droving days? Whereas this 'Come All Ye' kind of melody, even if it's modal, or even if it's pentatonic, doesn't sound strange to ears that are tuned to conventional music.

Melodion - we had a melodion player once. When the collectors came onto the scene in the early s too many of the good singers were no longer available; consequently, quite a number of more or less broken singers, singers who weren't so adept at carrying a tune, were recorded, and their versions passed as standard.

Shorrocks, Graham. The term was coined in by an Englishman, William Thomswho wanted to use an Anglo-Saxon term for what was then called "popular antiquities.

Adler, Kurt. If the claim made by Anderson and Meredith inthat the selection of songs printed in Folk Songs of Australia was 'representative of the whole continent', is true, then presumably the proportions would have been similar if Meredith's collecting had been done in Western Australia or the Northern Territory, rather than New South Wales.
