This medley of traditional sea-faring songs, while written in the sand dunes of beautiful Lake Michigan, brings to life a sense of the wide-open ocean as well. "Sea Chanty," an exciting, rhythmic, driving tune opens the medley followed by "Sloop John B" in an easy going Caribbean style. "Sailor's Hornpipe," an up-tempo fiddle tune, wraps up the piece. Imagine the sailors in days of old dancing on the wooden deck for exercise as each section takes their turn with the melody!
