Eric Bogle

One of Australia's eminent singer/songwriters, Eric Bogle has been sharing his unique Scotsman-goes-down-under view since the late-'70s. His songs, including "And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda," "Leaving Nancy," "Nobody's Moggy Now," and "Little Gomez," have been covered by a growing list of artists, including June Tabor, the Pogues, Mary Black, Donovan, Billy Bragg, and the Dubliners. The Fureys' rendition of "No Man's Land (Green Fields of France)" spent 26 weeks on the Irish music charts, including ten weeks at the top position. The son of a bagpipe player, Bogle wrote poetry at the age of eight. Influenced by Elvis Presley and Lonnie Donegan, he taught himself to play guitar and joined a series of rock and skiffle bands. A career in music was the furthest thing from Bogle's mind, however. After leaving school at the age of 16, he worked a variety of jobs, including manual laborer, export clerk, and bartender. Moving to Australia, in 1969, to work as an accountant, Bogle soon connected with a folk club in Canberra and became immersed in the country's acoustic music scene. His first song to capture international attention, "And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda," was inspired by watching an ANZAC march in Canberra, and was originally 15 minutes long. "No Man's Land (Green Fields of France)," which was written after a visit to a military cemetery in northern France, reflected Bogle's continuing fascination with World War I. Residing near the southern Australian city of Adelaide, Bogle performs with a quartet that features drummer Jon Jones; fiddle, guitar, and mandolin player David O'Neill; and former-Pyewackett bassist, keyboardist, and saxophonist Ian Blake. ~ Craig Harris

Love Bloody Rotten Audience--st i l l laughing on tenth hearing

A great performer, enjoyed seeing him in the early 90's in Minneapolis (find live performances of his work if you can)!

Dirty Rotten Audience should be in the rep of every performer of folk, ethnic or historical music. It is a total hoot.

I first came across Eric Bogle by finding his lyrics included in the prestigious 'Oxford Book of Traditional Verse, in the chapter entitled Tradition in the Making. I assumed he was a 19th century poet, but read the short bio in the book's appendix and discoverd that he was a contemporary folksinger. A few months later, by lucky happenstance , he performed live in Atlanta and stayed with some friends of mine. I got to have dinner iwth him and his band and found them all smart, funny, talented and

I echo what John Bobinger said - what a great find this artist is, and I have Pandora to thank for it. His style reminds me very much of the late, great Harry Chapin whom I miss so much.

The greatest thing about Pandora is listening to, and learning about, artists I would never have known without it. Thank you for introducing me to Eric Bogle.

He has come a long way from Fyshwick (Canberra) with his words and melodies.
I recommend 'Keeper of the Flame' to all you.
Oh yeah, see him live, especially in an intimate setting, like a pub, an RSL, or small club.

One of the greatest singer song writers of all time. He is able to express in a few words a lifetime of emotions

...and about how many writers can you say, "I don't want to miss a word ..."?

Attending an Eric Bogle concert is just about as good as it gets. He manages to combine a fabulously wry wit with a genuine anger at the injustices of the world we live in. Someone needs to clone this man!

If you can listen to all of Scraps of Paper album without tearing up at some point you are an android. After hearing "Wiilie Mc Bride" and "'and the band played Waltzing Matilda" from this Album listen to "the Gift of Years" and grab the bench, its stike three. Eric sometimes refers to himself as a "wee midget", he's short in stature but a giant musically.
