Description: Lee Murdock has uncovered a boundless body of music and stories of the Great Lakes. There is an amazing timelessness in this music. Great Lakes songs are made of hard working, hard living people, and about ships that go down and ships that come in. Noted as a fluent instrumentalist, Murdock's musical influences span fifteen generations, combining ragtime, Irish, blues and folk styles. His flair for storytelling in songs, leads to making folk music for the modern era. Lee Murdock's work is a documentary and also an anthem to the people who live, work, learn and play along the freshwater highways of North America.
