the PADDY-MELONS

For years I've loved Banjo Patterson's poem _Santa Claus In The Bush_. But I had no idea what a "paddy-melon" was. Now I've been told it's a smallish kangaroo. Is that true? The poem NEEDS a good tune from someone. But that'd have to be cleared with the publisher of _The Collected Verse Of A.B. Patterson_ (Angus and Robertson) Last I knew they were at 89 Castlereigh Street---Sydney Art Thieme

hi,

This is better than I could have hoped for. Thanks everyone, let's keep'em coming.

Joe, of course Alan is in the band, (we're in 2 bush-bands and a duo together).... the other bloke is Eric....

Alice, Yes I did live in Belfast.... loved the Wild Irish Wallabies, by the way.

G'day,
Lots of good suggestions here, working out which not to use will be a problem.

We have sung as a duo: "Foster and Alison", but the bass player might feel a bit left out if we don't find a new name.

Cheers,
Alan Foster

Alison, I cannot for the life of me find the song I'm thinking of - neither in my head or the DT, but I'm sure I heard it on Fiona Ritchie's show. It was about the Irish going to Australia and how they pined for the home, trying to fit into a strange land. The refrain was haunting; something to do with green threads among the gold. Maybe there's an idea in it.

I have the great good fortune to be on my way to the beach - perhaps in the quiet it'll come to me!

"Colleen and Bruce" (Would give you the chance to do a little comedy on stage about which of the blokes is Bruce. But this name is not suitable if you want to become famous and go solo.)

Isn't there a place called Ayer's Rock? How about "Ayer's Shamrock"?

"New South Ireland"

"St. Patrick's in Fall"

"Emerald" is easily the cleverest so far, but I needed the explanation. Maybe you could write a song--"I went from Ireland to Oz, Emerald Isle to Emerald City..."

I also like "Harp and Foster", but think it works even better as "Foster and Harp".

Hi,

Yes, this is the sort of stuff I'm looking for..... Keep the suggestions coming.

If it makes a difference, I'm the Irish one and the two blokes are Aussie. Any variations on "Paddy Spade and the Diggers"??

It got my 4 year old running into the room to see what I was laughing at!!!

Hi

I know this isn't a song request..... but just between us friends........ We're trying to think of a name for an Irish / Australian band. (2 fellas, 1 girl playing a mixture of Irish, Celtic and Aussie stuff.)

I can't think of anything that hasn't already been used.

Anyone got any suggestions????

Slainte

Alison
