Little Hinkley Yawl
Here is a truly unique collection of songs, which are mostly new and yet sound familiar. The lyrics capture many aspects, moods and lore of the salt water sailor: from joyous light-hearted gayety to the dread of the hurricane from the often ironic situation of sailing with a significant other to awe-inspiring reverence for Neptune's domain. While the words are sure to grab the crustiest of the old salts, the music behind the lyrics will set toes a-tappin' and very possibly plant a catchy melody or two for whistling in the dinghy. In fact, this album has come to be popular with many non-sailors thanks to it's heart-felt musicianship featuring a sometimes jazzy, sometimes Celtic fiddle, as well as banjo and harmonica. You won't be surprised to hear a renowned artist such as Jimmy Buffet or Nancy Griffith recording some of these songs written by Steve or Laurie Keith. Their songs show the craftmanship which characterizes songs with lasting and broad appeal. If you give this album a chance you are sure to join the growing numbers of their fans.
