“[Bird's} creative vision shines through to bring to life an epic event in history that still holds a fascination for us to this day. Picking only three songs to write about on this album was a challenge, as the entire album was a journey into the fateful night that claimed an unsinkable ship. The music pouring from Bird’s instrument is sure and true, inviting us in to experience the might and majesty that dwelled in the Irish craftsman that made this incredible ship. In original arrangements, Bird winds these pieces through his work, bringing the fateful voyage to life as we go on an audible journey of sound and sensation as the ship meets its fate. This album is magnificent and if you have ever been intrigued by the Titanic or Celtic fusion music, you owe it to yourself to listen.
