Hi and thanks for visiting these pages.

We intend to introduce others to some of the interesting old time musicians we have met and their music. Though many have passed on, their memory and their music endures. For instance, people such as;

  • Rita Troutman and Ivy Fernando. Accordion players from North-western NSW
  • Joe Yates. Interesting fiddle player with a great repertoire from Sofala NSW.
  • The Archibald Family. Fantastic songs from the New England Tableland
