G'day 'Squeezer',

I'm sure you are right ... Sally was an established 'performer' in her tradition. She had lived for many years with her family involved in work - especially on building the railways ... and became an established source of songs in the fettlers' camps and such mobile, changing communities.

There would have been none of our sense of seeking out the "real" / "oldest" / ""genuine"???" version of any song - rather fitting performance into the background knowledge, experience and community of her family's co-workers.

Regards,

Bob Bolton
