Toucan Pirates: Buried Treasure of the Toucan Pirates

This week's MHN/Music featured album is Buried Treasure of the Toucan Pirates, by the Toucan Pirates, a tribe of Seattle lads who play traditional tunes from Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales and the Shetland Isles using concertina, button accordion, Irish bouzouki, tenor banjo, pennywhistle, and a West Indian steel drum for that original "Pirates of the Caribbean" flavor. Here's a sample of their song "Down by the Ocean Tide." Buy their CD at CD Baby. One dollar of the sale proceeds supports Maritime Heritage Network.
