The Emigrant and the Exile
by John Munro
Eric Bogle is a songwriter whose songs have been recorded by such as Joan Baez, The Pogues, The Fureys, June Tabor, and many others. He is best known for songs such as “And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda,” “The Green Fields of France,” “Now I’m Easy,” “Leaving Nancy,” and hundreds of others, which have touched the hearts or tickled the funny bones of many.
He was born in Peebles, Scotland, in 1944 and migrated to Australia in 1969. His songs have earned him the Order of Australia and the UN Peace Medal among many other accolades. Eric and I (as his accompanist) have travelled the world many times since joining forces in 1980, and Eric’s music is appreciated across North America, Europe, and Australia. Now it’s time to stop and reflect on the journey.
