Sam Chatmon and Kenny Hall
« on: May 12, 2011, 05:13:03 AM »
About 40 years ago I heard about a recording by Sam Chatmon on which Kenny Hall played some mandolin.  Did this in fact ever happen?  Is there any recorded evidence of this?  Been listening to Sam and Kenny separately but wonder how such a compilation would sound.

... just checked: Neither Fancourt & McGrath (1943-1970) nor Ford & McGrath (1971-2000) list such a recording !

Well done Stefan, so it wasn't a recording they participated in but a festival appearance which happened to be taped.

I got to play some with Kenny way back.  One night at the Monk's Den in Clovis, CA he could not play mandolin because his fingernails were broken so he played fiddle that night.  Great musician and a wonderful mentor.

Is Kenny still around?  Back in the 70s during my Fresno days he was really in top form.

Oh cool, I have that album on my ipod.
I have to confess I'd never heard of Kenny Hall until I read this thread.

This is in fact the recording to which I had referred.  So, now how do it get it?
