For much of its history, Australia’s bush music belonged to an oral and folkloric tradition, and was only later published in print in volumes such as Banjo Paterson’s Old Bush Songs, in the 1890s. The distinctive themes and origins of Australia’s “bush music” or “bush band music” can be traced to the songs sung by the convicts who were sent to Australia during the early period of the British colonisation, beginning in 1788. Early Australian ballads sing of the harsh ways of life of the epoch and of such people and events as bushrangers, swagmen, drovers, stockmen and shearers. Convict and bushranger verses often railed against government tyranny.
