||Eric is an internationally known
folksinger, originally from Peebles, Scotland. Born in 1944, he spent his
first twenty five years in Scotland. In 1969 he emigrated to Australia first
settling in Canberra. He eventually trained, and worked as an accountant, then in
1980 became a full time folk singer. Eric currently lives near Adelaide, South
Australia. A gentle man, he's also one of the most straight forward and nicest
people you could ever hope to meet.
He is best known for is the award winning
"And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda." It was first recorded by
June Tabor, and has been recorded by many other artists since. Other songs he's
written include "No Man's Land (The Green Fields Of France)," "Leaving
