BOB QUINN BRINGS BACK HIS UNCLE BONNEY'S ISLAND POEMS! A 2-CD SET

CD 1: Bonney Quinn's Poems and Sea Songs
24 poems from C. Bonney Quinn, boatman, musician, humorist, and Maine island boy. Poems are interspersed with Bob's historical commentary as well as a rare old recording of Bonney singing with friends and family at sea!

CD 2: Bob Quinn's Generation, and the Next Bob Quinn, Maine lobsterman, mailboat operator, storyteller, and keeper of everything Eagle reminisces about the Quinn family island. Includes a storybook reading with his grandson Sam, poems written by summer folk dedicated to Bob and Helene, and a musical ode to everyone's favorite Eagle Island couple.

Bonney Quinn's hobby was writing nautical poems with a humorous bent. They were never intended for publication, but are too priceless to be kept quiet, too melodious to be restricted to print. Thanks to his nephew Bob's own humor and "born-and-bred in Penebscot Bay" delivery, Bonney's personality comes through loud and clear. Bob gives the background on some of the poems, lets others stand alone. Bonney poked fun at everything, says Bob, most especially himself, and pulled it off. now Bob puts it over again… this time for us, for his family, and for generations to come.
