Twilighters - 1968 - Waltzing Matilda


Waltzing Matilda/The Albury Ram/The Reedy Lagoon/Lazy Harry's



The Twiliters, affectionately known as the 'twits', originated in Perth, Western Australia. This trio was one of many inspired by the Kingston Trio and their successors in the American folk scene and, as such, relied heavily on Anglo-American numbers. They were, by far, the best Australian exponents of this type of folk music and, as Warren Fahey notes, a lot of their music was adopted with variation from that of the American "Journeymen" group.
