Album Notes
The Lake Washington Ship Canal and Ballard Locks: triumph or tragedy? At the centennial of the canal’s completion, these songs explore its lasting impact. The canal opened a link between Puget Sound and the rich resources of the freshwater interior, playing a major role in Seattle’s growth into a metropolis. But for Native peoples, the environmental changes brought by the ship canal accelerated the loss of their traditional way of life.
These songs tell many stories: those of migrating fish and Native Americans, dreamers and workers, sailors and fishermen, kayakers and picnickers. The musical genres range from acoustic to soft rock, from swing jazz to folk.
The songs on this CD were the winners in a songwriting contest organized by Maritime Folknet, a non-profit organiztion that continues the legacy of Northwest maritime music. This project was supported, in part, by an award from 4Culture. Recording, mixing and mastering were done at Jack Straw Cultural Center.
