In 2005 Rosemary published ‘Frae the Friends and Land I Love’ based on Georgiana’s handwritten collection of music. Rosemary will discuss the diversity of music and dance collections discovered in libraries, archives and private homes in Australia and New Zealand while researching material for their book, a major focus of which, relates to the depth of interest early settlers took to keep music and dance in their lives.
