Chuck and Steve return to their roots with classics from the Holy Mackerel years and stretch their wings with three new tunes. This well-crafted album also features friends and well-known Maine musicians.
Schooner Fare's singular spirit has never been more evident than on this ten song collection. For The Times contains six original songs and four traditional offerings, all imbued with that special Schooner Fare magic.
Schooner Fare favorites with a twist--the trio is backed by a small orchestra. The orchestral settings by Michael Braz are some of the most sensitive arrangements ever conceived for a folk setting and very complementary to the Schooner Fare sound.
This double album marked Schooner Fare's tenth anniversary with live performances of many previously unrecorded favorites. Recorded live at the Birchmere in Alexandria, Virginia, one of the nation's premier listening clubs.
