Where Did You Get That Hat?


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I noticed that most of my music has an Americana influence (and bugger all wrong with that ) so I would like to put a finger on the culture scales and tip the balance a bit back towards dear old blighty and an old English music hall favourite........banjouke to the fore and a hat on me head .....

Haha!
Tip o'the hat to you, sir. Watching and listening whilst sipping my first morning cuppa here in Blighty. Thoroughly enjoyable. Where, by the way, DID you get that hat?

Marks and Sparks...
£30 it was ....bloody 'ell, first time I've worn it as well....and
it's more Harry Worth than Robert Johnson ...though for obvious reasons I suppose.... I bought it for my Blues hat .....nah....

Chers

Harry Worth
Haha! That will most likely mean nothing to our American friends, but I have fond memories, yes. And of Mr. Pastry...

That hat
Funny song! I like the faster section at the end, too. Flowing right hand on the banjouke. The video and the sound were slightly out of sync - maybe one travels faster to Australia than the other? Entertaining performance, Chris!

Thanks ...
the synch issue I do not understand because the sound was recorded by the same camera ...unless the PC is sampling them at different rates..........whatever that means ...I switched it off and switched it on again as well , that made no difference....
IT knowledge. Exhausted.

cheers

Abolutely charming and greatly entertaining...
...This was a real chocolate bar of a song and you delivered it extremely well Chris. And, it was even more of a treat to watch you perform it live. Incidentally, you look very spiffy here, a regular Jack Buchannan! Thanks again mate--I loved it!

Git dat hat...
I dig you guys doing the classic buskers music. Americans have nothing resembling the cultural expression... The story song, with it's shades and colors is lost coming over the ocean or something. I dig yer tune.

A tip of me hat to YOU sir for a stirling performance. Mine's a fishing hat with Alaskan Amber advertising on it, but what the hell. Stanley Holloway eat your heart out. A nobby rendition, indeed, Chris. Thanks, Peter.

Harry Worth does Formby indeed....as soon as I put the hat on and looked in the mirror a combination of inspector Frost and Harry Worth looked back .....I thought "You couldn't be cool in a refrigirator could you ?" lol

Where Did You Get That Hat?
Sorry I'm late here, although you are on my list of faves I never get any notification when your songs are posted! - anyway - Love this track, I remember this song, I seem to have grown up with it. Nice performance - your style reminds me of Frank Crumit who I bought a few cds of a little while back. Good stand alone music. - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwI76gO1v90

Very fetching!
With a hat as stylish as that the money is almost a bonus.

Great performance, and good to see you in action. You're a true virtuoso on those four strings.
