Over the next few years hints that the performers of Hawaiian music were actually in Australia crept in occasionally. In 1947 Keith Branch and his South Sea Islanders recorded 'Where the Blue Gums Turn Red in the Sunset', but it sounds as much country as Hawaiian and is notable for an unusual, staccato style of steel guitar playing.
