Album Notes
The Men o’ War Balladeers are;
Michael Raffel,
Adam Shulman,
Kristoffer Ross,
Cole Boggan, and
Dan Salzer.

Finally, you hold it in your hands - “the album.” It has been nearly six months since we all trooped into Bob Warren’s cozy saltbox home on the Battenkill River and spent a day laying down tracks, and, thanks to my fellow Balladeers’ patience and Bob’s skilled ears, we couldn’t be happier with it.
We had to make some tough choices on what to include, but slowly got it whittled down to our absolute favorites. We start with our traditional concert opener, Dúlamán, springing from nineteenth-century Irish seaweed gatherers. Moving over to the shores of Nova Scotia, we borrow our title from Giant, the first of several from late Canadian songwriter Stan Rogers. Johnny Leave Her and Barrett’s Privateers take us to the wonderful world of sea shanties. The Green Fields of America and Frankie and Johnny present a sampling of the diverse traditions of a cappella solos we come from, whilst Red is the Rose puts all our voices together in five-part harmony. The guitar comes back out for The Witch of the Westmereland, from the pen of Scotland’s Archie Fisher. We chose the anthem Northwest Passage and the uplifting Mary Ellen Carter to round out our offerings from Stan Rogers. Arthur MacBride, tracing its roots back to 1700’s Ireland, advocates good old fisticuff pacifism.
So, thank you for buying “the album,” and I sincerely hope you enjoy listening.

Thanks is due to:
Bob Warren, for his constant enthusiasm and technical prowess,
Daren Carroll for Irish Language assistance, and
Hubbard Hall staff for use of rehearsal space.
Most of all, however, to the rest of the Balladeers - Cole, Mike, Adam, and Dan; this whole project has been a great pleasure, and an honor to work with you all on it. It’s been a blast! ~ Kristoffer
