The Boatman's Daughter
Release Date:
Recording Location:
John Altman Studios, San Francisco, CA

An updated and remastered edition of Golden Bough's 1983 release. A dedicated contemporary take on traditional Celtic music recorded in a time when Celtic music was still very much a tiny niche market that barely catered to the softer side, The Boatman's Daughter has a fresh, sincere air to it that remains timeless. The album includes a number of original compositions, some traditional material, and a couple of adaptations of folk songs ("Black Jack Davy," for one) that qualify for original status.

Well worth seeking out.
