Hungry Rocks

Hungry Rocks is a tune from the first volume of the Portland Collection. The rocks along our coastline have historically been hungry for ships passing through between the islands... that's why the coast of Maine has many, many lighthouses on its shores and islands... to warn sea captains of the dangerous ledges and outcroppings that lie just beneath the water. Today however, the only thing hungry on the rocks were the fiddlers... hungry for the delicious foods that were brought and shared, and hungry to play tunes together in a relaxed and beautiful setting.
