The lively duo of Jonathan Lay and Gordy Euler perform songs and tunes "plundered from land and sea,' including Celtic, English, and old-time American music. Their powerful and supple voices do justice to a gentle ballad or a rough-and-tumble sea chantey. "You won't have to be shanghaied into enjoying Euler and Lay's music…Let's hear more from them." - Sing Out! Magazine.
