GUEST,Jim McLean Review: Waltzing Matilda (74* d) RE: Review: Waltzing Matilda 27 Jul 02


Hi BoB, As a record producer I recorded Nigel Denver singing The Braes O' Balquhither (as Tannahill spelled it) to the original tune suggested by him The Three Carles O Buchanan. The McPeakes version obviously 'went over the water' to the Northern Irish who are sometimes called Ulster Scots. I knew the McPeakes very well, even old Francie who is sadly gone. His son, youg Francie has also passed away leaving another 'young Francie'whom I last saw in my house here in London about 10 years ago. You bring back memories! I also recorded Jimmie Logan, the Scottish comedian, singing the McPeakes' version. I think the connection is immigrant Scottish/Irish travellers(?) in Australia. Cheers, Jim Mclean
