Oak Island Story


No Video


east coast vibes are felt throughout with 8 of the 10 tracks all originals by the native of Terence Bay, Nova Scotia. There's some unheard winners here including The First Settlers, Chest of Gold (labelled as Oak Island Story on the label), and Sweet Country Air. "They're Our Next Generation" is a lovely and peaceful ode to the Nova Scotian hippies of the day. With musical sketches of Peggy's Cove, Oak Island and the surrounding area - the album is a timeless and enjoyable experience.
