Great ship goes down a storm
On July 2, Gavin and Maurice performed two songs at Hal Willner’s Harry Smith Project (Meltdown Festival). ‘Fatal Flower Garden’ was orginally performed by Nelstone’s Hawaiians in 1929. The second track was ‘When that great ship went down/Nearer to thee’, by William and Versey Smith, 1927. Mary Margaret O’Hara and jazz great Jimmy Scott guested on the second song.
