From the recording Red Beet Records - 2008
Eric left a junk shop holding a leather-bound songbook full of 19th century sea shanties. Turns out there was some guy out there on the ocean, navigating storms and tides and feeling just like us. We decided on accordion and octave mandolin, just to sex things up a bit. And also because Gunderman’s accordion sounds like the night sky and O’Brien’s mando sounds like the choppy, salty and deep water.
