Clancy Of The Overflow/Solar
For nearly 30 years Wallis and Matilda have moved the emotions of Australians of all ages with their inspired musical interpretations of the works of A.B. (Banjo) Paterson.
Beginning with the all time Classic, Clancy of the Overflow, and moving on to a stunning rendition of The Man from Snowy River and other famous works this band has carved itself an important niche in the history of Australian music. The release of Clancy of the Overflow in 1980 led to a flood of correspondence from grateful Australians -- retired drovers, school teachers, cattlemen, teenagers, disc jockeys and ordinary suburban Aussies. Such was the stunning popularity of their debut album, Pioneers, that Wallis and Matilda have headlined the Australia Day Concert at Tamworth four times, most importantly in Australia's Bicentennial year, 1988. They have also performed many concerts in their own right throughout Australia.
