Chris Prowse - Songs about The Shiner

From Sunday Morning, 11:12 am on 3 March 2013

Chris Prowse has followed up his Tui Award-winning 2009 album Trouble on the Waterfront with a new 'alt history' CD which takes its inspiration from John A. Lee's writings about the notorious colonial swagman Shiner Slattery. The songs and the music tell stories from those times around a century ago, about the swagmen, the gold seekers, the tricksters and the remittance men.
