The Queensland Tiger - Clancy of the Overflow

The Queensland Tiger - Clancy of the Overflow
A late starter, the Queensland Tiger learnt to play piano by just playing folk songs. First song learnt was “Andy’s Gone with Cattle”, followed by many others by Henry Lawson. Ballads from the nineteenth century express the hopes, beliefs, and attitudes of people at that time, making an interesting comparison to those of today … some are different … some are the same. They also tell the history of the period.

All songs have videos on Youtube containing the lyrics, so they could be used for teaching.
The Queensland Tiger rarely performs live, and has no CDs. Accounts on Youtube and SoundCloud only, plus a website

About this track...

Complete poem published in The Bulletin in 1889 by “Banjo” Paterson (1864 – 1941). Paterson wished to contact Thomas Clancy, at a station named “The Overflow”, near Cobar, NSW. His letter brought a reply “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” This rhythm and content was the spark which gave rise to this poem
