Photographs from the  Bob Bolton collection, taken at the wake held on 24th March 2001 for John Meredith, AM, founding member and Life Member of the Bush Music Club.

Wake photos from the Chris & Virginia Woodland Collection are here
On 16 February we lost probably the most important collector of Australian folk lore, and an important member of our Club. This article John Meredith, The Bush Music Club & The Australian Folk Song Revival (1950’s)  covers some of John's contributions to the collecting and preservation of our national culture. We hope it will help underline John's importance to this Club and all who care about our heritage. Mulga Wire, no. 144, April 2001.
