Hold The Boat! 13 Original Songs from the Island

Washington Island’s Trueblood Performing Arts Center is selling a new music CD whose title, Hold the Boat!, and title song are inspired by what one thinks with hope or trepidation when running late, racing to catch a ferry to the Island on the curvy road, and county traffic is slowing progress.

The musical compilation comprises 13 original songs – a mix of folk, blues, country, light rock and reggae – and each is sung by an Island or Island-connected songwriter who provided her or his talents to this project for free. Julian Hagen and sound engineer Kevin Jones co-produced the CD, and recording took place during the last five months on the Island.

All proceeds will benefit the Trueblood Performing Arts Center. Visit to order your copy of Hold the Boat!
