The long awaited CD from the Windsor, Ontario band which included MudCatter Clinton Hammond, has finally been released!
A mix of 15 songs of CC's take on traditional, contemporary, and original work, 'The Long Road' is their first CD. From their liner notes:
"As we worked through the recording, mixing, and mastering of this CD, we found that many of the songs presented here tell the tale of a journey of one kind or another. It seemed only natural, then, as we discussed ideas for a title, that 'The Long Road' was a fitting name. We've included songs and instrumentals that have proven over the years to be our audiences' favorites... They happen to be our favorites too. Cheers, Celtic Cross"
