Madeleine Bay - CD Liner Notes

Madeleine Bay

Guitar Compositions by Jim Krause
with Anne Hurley, cello

“May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view.
May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.”
      – Edward Abbey

These songs are inspired by travels, not by car, but under sail, paddle, and by foot. We began our musical journey separated by hundreds of miles and youthful lives. Years after the joyful discovery that we loved one another, we began to explore charted waters and mountain trails, and translated our wonder and gratitude for the natural world into original tunes that weave classical themes with the rich tapestry of folk traditions and indigenous music. This collection is dedicated with love to the memory of our dear daughter, Maddy.
     - Jim & Anne
