The Craigielee forms part of the "Waltzing Matilda" story. The tune
is based James Barr's composition (1818) "Thou Bonnie Woods of
Craigielee". It is not known how or when Thomas Bulch obtained a
copy of James Barr's composition but Bulch's orchestration for brass
band was played at the Warrnambool Races in April 1894 by the
Warrnambool Garrison Artillery Band. Christina Macpherson heard the
tune and later played a version of it for Banjo Paterson at Winton,
in August 1895.
