The Franklyn B Paverty Bush Band has been a Canberra institution for many years and recorded Waltzing Matilda twice on one CD. Alongside the more common version arranged by Marie Cowen in 1903, they included the lesser known ‘Queensland’ version, discovered by folklorist John Manifold in the 1950s and rather closer to the Patterson/MacPherson original in words and melody. Recorded live in the Great Hall of Parliament House, Canberra, on the evening of its official opening in May 1988.
