Diamantina Drover

Track 7 of “Greatest Australian Songs Volume 1”.
DVD available at stringybark.com – order at sales@stringybark.com Hugh McDonald’s powerful song “The Diamantina Drover”, about the allure of the drover’s life and the passage of time, lends itself to some misty electric guitar licks and equally misty visuals from the Diamantina River region. A moody piece that glimpses the barren and raw inland of Australia and the tough life of the drovers who moved the herds along the old cattle trails.
