MHN/Music: Roger Chartier / Sailing Away

This week's MHN/Music album pick is Sailing Away, by Roger Chartier. A musician for 35 years, Roger Chartier grew up in the port of New Bedford, Massachusetts surrounded by the maritime /fishing industry. CD Baby describes the album as "boating/island/folkish music with a flair for very different styles from bottle-neck guitar style to easy reggae to swing to fun upbeat bopping tunes to one wild Spanish-language song and lots of the island sound." Buy the album from CD Baby. Listen to a sample. A portion of the sale proceeds benefits Maritime Heritage Network.
