NOTES
Right to the Bone represents another collaboration by Newfoundlander's Rik Barron and Dave Panting. During the time that the CD was being made Rik lived in Prince Edward Island and not surprisingly many of the songs on the recording are from that area. This CD is a great example of maritime song catching . These wonderful songs are interpreted by Barron in his trademark baritone voice and as usual with these recordings are full of finely played and wonderful sounding acoustic instruments. For an example Lighthouse Keepers Dream by Scott Parsons, The Fire Hall Dance by Jamie MacSwain and The Red Dirt Road by Margie Carmichael capture the feel of PEI and Barron does a great job of interpreting them.
