Planxty Grace Davis

Here is another track that I recorded a bunch of years back at Melville Park Studio. The tune is in honor of Grace Davis who was the wife of my great Uncle Stinson Davis, the schooner ship captain. You can find the music notation here. Also, I’ve added the tune to the virtual album Castaway.

I always loved this picture. It makes me wonder how many evenings she waited on the shore for her husband to return…or would he ever? It is hard to imagine the complete lack of communication that often accompanied life during the age of sail.

    Greg,
    Its funny that you imagined Grace sitting waiting for her love to return to her from sea. I don’t know if I told you this but when I was in grade school I wrote a report on that same picture. I essentially wrote what you just had talked about. I was always enthralled by that picture and it’s romantic notions.
