Where the Working Boats Went

Life and Times


Wixamtree Recordings WIX052 (2009)

Life and Times are Barry Goodman and Graeme Meek. Together they have produced the show 'Where the Working Boats Went' which is about the history of the canals (250 years: 1759-2009). This album contains the songs from that show. My thanks to Graeme and Barry for providing the words and music for all these songs and allowing musical snippets to be used. I can thoroughly recommend this CD.
