Our 2nd recording, Full and Away, was named one of the top 10 Vermont albums of 2000 by the arts weekly Seven Days.
It opens with one of our ever popular dance sets. Other tunes sets include Laddie's Return which re-visits the shanty Hieland
Laddie from our first album but in instrumental form, a playful interpretation of a Scottish march together with one of Viveka's
compositions (Two Dragons), a set of hornpipes played at clog tempo as well as up-tempo, and a final thrash in which
Brian cuts loose on the banjo. The songs draw from the Flanders collection (the unlikely tale of the Tarry Sailor), from
Robert Tannahill (Are You Sleeping, Maggie?), from the Ohio valley (Shawneetown), and from Viveka's pen: Guiding
Star was way too subtle for Peter to notice the imagery, whilst La Maquisarde gives an account of her grandmother who
was active in the French resistance during World War II.
The boat featured on the album cover, Feather, was a love of Rick's life and his one-time home.
