Tamarack's Frobisher Bay is a "down north" musical journey that is alternately ethereal and passion-drenched, opening on a haunting, reflective note with "Days of Sun and Wind" before the trio sound manifests itself in a more traditional mode, full force, on the rousing "Oh, Klondike." The sound is somewhere between Peter, Paul & Mary, the Seekers, and Stan Rogers, weighted more toward the latter thematically -- the CD is filled with beautiful moments, but perhaps the best of them all is the title track, done a cappella and reminiscent of A.L. Lloyd's best work at its most historically penetrating.
