  1. Paul Mortimer

    Paul Mortimer aka Mort is involved with Irish music on tenor banjo and whistle, and the Gaelic Club in Sydney. Pat Lyons lives in Castlemaine Victoria and still plays Irish pipes, flute and whistle, and actively promotes Irish piping in Australia.

  2. Alex Bishop

    Dave Roland and Craig Edmondson are singer/guitarists that performed solo or with Ryebuck band. Dave is now a psychologist, writer and educator while Craig has pursued a career in local government. He is still performing as a soloist or with Ryebuck, at least he was up until the pandemic shut everything down.

  3. Julie Bishop

    If anyone else from Mary’s list wants to update their status here, I will print the responses and post them to her.

  4. Diana Pinckney

    Jim Beegling is my brother. Lives in Brisbane right now but is likely to move to Port Pirie or back to Broken Hill. He still loves his guitar and composing music.
