“There once was a shearer by name Bluey Brink.

A devil for work and a terror for drink.

He could shear a full hundred each day without fear.

And drink without winking four gallons of beer”

A traditional Australian Folksong which has several tune variations. I chose to arrange this version of the tune for a String Ensemble because of its haunting nature. The arrangement is for Violin 1, Violin 2, Violin 3 (sub for Viola), Viola, Cello, and Double Bass. If you use this arrangement, please let me know how it goes! The same tune is also used in my Australian Folksong Medley No. 4 for concert band…Can be performed by a String Quartet or Quintet as well.

 Grade = 3.5  Duration = 1:45 mins
