Castlebay musicians treat listeners to a musical journey through time and across the Atlantic as they interweave songs, spritely dance tunes, and haunting aires inspired by the spirit of their rich nautical and Celtic heritage. Exuberant vocals are supported with Julia Lane’s unique self-taught, award-winning Celtic harp style, and Fred Gosbee’s musical expertise shows in his playing of 12-string guitar, violin and woodwinds.
Garden Glory — and By The Sea cards evoke the beauty of seaside wonders and bring more than an inspiring message, they bring a small piece of colorful art to add to your home or office. These cards are printed on 100 lb. Cougar Cover Stock and fit into a 5X7 frame. The garden and seaside scenes on these cards can be found along water’s edge of both Passamaquoddy Bay and The Great Bay of Fundy, in the picturesque town of St. Andrews By-The-Sea, an historic Canadian community across the bay from Eastport.
