Wallis & Matilda
Posted on November 23, 2011
For more than 30 years, Wallis & Matilda (The Band From Snowy River) have moved the emotions of Australians of all ages with their inspired musical interpretations of the works of A.B (Banjo) Paterson. Beginning with the all time classic Clancy of the Overflow released in May 1980, followed shortly after by "Pioneers" the first of a series of tribute albums, which achieved platinum award status. Wallis & Matilda have been involved in major celebrations for the Australia Day Bicentenary in Tamworth, celebrations to mark the centenary of The Man From Snowy River and Waltzing Matilda poems and Centenary of Federation activities. "Song of the Federation" Volume 4 in their tribute series of albums was released to coincide with these celebrations."Over the Range" Volume 5 and "Song of the Pen" Volume 6 were released in 2008 taking the number of poems set to music to over 70. All these CDs are now available in two 3 box sets "The Great Wallis and Matilda Collections" 1st and 2nd Editions from The Planet Company thru MGM as well as their latest 30th anniversary release "Banjo the Bard of the Bush". The entire Wallis & Matilda music catalogue is now
available for downloading thru I-tunes and all major music access sites.
Wallis & Matilda believe that Paterson's verse set to music can be sung by everyone. In doing so it is their hope to keep Australian history alive through their music.
