Our 3rd album continues the theme of presenting our self-penned songs: Viveka's tale of the Lewis & Clark expedition from
the point of view of the fiddler, Pierre Cruzatte, and Peter's wanderings along the North Sea coastline near where
he grew up, written in the throes of emigration, Winter's Dark Horizon. In addition there are four songs from the
Flanders collection, including I Live Too High For Comfort. This depression era account of a flea-bag hotel, originally
recorded unaccompanied, is given the full swing treatment in which Rick shows off his chops and Brian dusts off his cornet.
Interspersed among the songs is, of course, a healthy dose of tune sets, including a playful interpretation of some New England
reels, an epic medley of tunes from Cape Breton, an eclectic medley written by Rick, Viveka and our esteemed producer, and a
beautiful waltz from the pen of Jean-Paul Loyer of Joliette, Quebec. Rounding off the recording is a rollicking set of reels from
Burlington's great fiddler, Louis Beaudoin, learned from Pete Sutherland who produced this album.
