A Bit of Banter: 19- Sam Hall/ The Palmer River Song

a-muso-imageThere’s no fool like an old fool, they say, so what happens when a bunch of oul’  coots gather together to make music? The next bunch of posts may enlighten you as to the question just posed and may also, perhaps,  enrage or entertain. Anything’s better than a yawn, I guess. These songs were the result of a few sessions around a table laden with alcoholic beverages of various kinds. Plonked in the centre of the table was a laptop with built-in mic that somehow survived the knocks and spillages that were part and parcel of the sessions. 

Song 19: Sam Hall/ The Palmer River Tune– This song has been in my repertoire for decades and when I discovered that there were chimney sweeps in my ancestry it made sense at a deep, even DNA, level. The song is twinned with a great Aussie tune from the gold-rushpalmer-river days in Far Northern Queensland.
