CD cover - Island to Island  

... smacks together folk, celtic and rock music with a slash of irreverence, and a dash of wild wisdom. The 'Mortals' like to call this creative clash "Folk'n'Roll".

This energetic CD of entirely original songs was written mostly by David James Young and released in summer '99.


Mortal Morsels from this CD ...
Eat the Night MP3, 382K a rhythmic ride which describes another late night with a sharp-toothed bite
Dreams are for Sailors MP3, 620K a romantic ballad straight from the maritime shores
Turn Your Eyes Away MP3, 583K playwright Michael O'Brien provides the lyrics for this philosophical song
The Plague MP3, 615K medieval themes may speak of dark times past and to come ... but not to worry: vibrant fiddle and bodhran, and waggish accordion above the rocking guitar make you feel more than all right in the end
