Review Text Few modern interpreters of sea chanteys capture their spirit & energy as well as the Seattle-area duo of William Pint and Felicia Dale. "White Horses" is another choice collection of very contemporary arrangements of mostly traditional material. This duo is equally comfortable in acoustic and electric modes, with the former predominating on this CD. They sing strong, clear harmonies, often multiplied by overdubbing, and in addition to Pint's steady guitar accompaniment, their sound is defined by Dale's squalling hurdy-gurdy, an unconventional sound in sea music but wonderful adaptation of one tradition to another. They add bass, drums, and amplification for two of the CD's best tracks, all-out Folk-Rock arrangements of "One More Day" and "Leave Her Johnny."
