Fred Maslan Songs of Bill Gallaher (13) RE: Songs of Bill Gallaher 30 Oct 16


I recently learned Bills' song "Three dollar Dreams" about coal mining on Vancouver Island. Coal was also a major industry in Washington state around Seattle. We have Coal Creek, Newport, Black Diamoond and Ravensdale. There was a mining disaster in Ravensdale in 1915 when 35 miners were lost. Mining continued as late as 1975. Ravensdale is the new location of Rainy Camp the Seattle Song Circle Camp held this year January 27-29.
