Galston Country Music Festival 2002

Wallis and Matilda

At the height of the renewed interest in Australian Bush Music in the early 1980's Wallis and Matilda sprang to prominence with four albums of superb musical evocations of A.B. Patterson's Poetry; including 'Pioneers' and 'The Old Australian Ways'.

The most successful of these tracks "Clancy of the Overflow" became a national top 10 hit and saw the expanded band take their place with The Bushwackers, The Bullamakankas and Redgum as the most influential of Bush revivalists of the period.

This is their first appearance at Galston.
