NOMADMan Peter Bellamy - died 24 Sept 1991 (189* d) RE: Peter Bellamy 18 yrs today since he died 07 Oct 11


On the same album, Second Wind, Peter recorded his setting of Lawson's poem, "The Bush Girl." In the liner notes Peter commented, "My father, who spent some time as a 'jackaroo' on a New South Wales sheep station in the 1920s, tried to interest me in the verses of Henry Lawson, but it never 'took' until I toured Australia in 1980. After that I rethunk, and noticing the long shadow of Rudyard Kipling over many of his pieces, I set several Lawson poems to music. The tender BUSH GIRL and the bizarre GLASS ON THE BAR seemed my most successful efforts."

Regards,
John
