Album Notes
Acoustic music, classic rock & original tunes. FATEA Runner up Instrumental album of the year. CKUA Top 10 folk album of the year. R2 Magazine ****

Recorded on location in a small theatre in rural Shropshire during the summer of 2010, with its beautiful pine floor and mellow age-worn brickwork, the location provided a wonderful sound as well as being a calming and peaceful setting. Listening back to the recordings, they seem infused with the idyllic surroundings in which they were made.

Another important element of this album is the inspiration of Shropshire, the county in England where the tracks were written and recorded. As well as being a very beautiful, wild county Shropshire is also rich in history and folklore, and some of this is reflected in the original tunes Three Fires, Corndon Morning, Red Moon and Wenlock Hare.

Exploring Cape Breton music for the first time resulted in a couple of traditional tunes - Herman the Carpenter, Wild Cat and Bonnie Nellie. The remaining traditional track is Londonderry Air (Danny Boy), in our opinion a truly beautiful and moving melody, as much today as at any time in its long history. 'A wonderful rendition of the Londonderry Air (Danny Boy)' (James McKeefry, Celtic Fringe BBC Radio, England. Nov 2010)

Whalebone have always enjoyed the challenge of performing tunes that audiences wouldn’t normally expect from two acoustic guitars and a fiddle. The three cover versions on this album -The Boxer, Sweet Child O’Mine and Stairway to Heaven - all probably fall into this category and demonstrate the beautiful melodies that the original songwriters wrote, with the instrumental versions proving a testament to how the songs stand up as pieces of music without the lyrics.
