The Captain’s Crew is from the Outer Banks of North Carolina where the Wright Brothers first flew, home of the famous Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and the site of the first English settlement in America, The Lost Colony of Roanoke Island.
The band has played at many fairs, festivals, and churches over the past 15 years including Merle Fest, The NC State Fair, Singing on the Mountain, The Midnight Jamboree at the Troubadour Theater and the Cowboy Church, both in Nashville. The diversity of the gospel music they sing and play is reflected by the diversity of the artists they have shared the stage with, including Ricky Van Shelton, John Anderson, The Dixie Melody Boys, The Kingston Trio, The Chairman of the Board, Michael Combs, The Greenes, Ronnie McDowell, Wanda Jackson and George Hamilton IV.
This is the seventh album for The Captain’s Crew, and their first in six years since the release of their self-titled album“Captain's Crew”.
The 13 songs on the album include 5 original songs and new arrangements of 8 old favorites. The CD begins with “There’s an Anchor in the Boat written by Eddie Francis. Former Warner Brothers recording artist, Roy Murray, plays flute and piccolo to give the song the sound of an old-time sea shanty. Murray arranged and played trumpet and cornet on a number of other songs on the CD including the title track, “Beyond the Sunset”. This classic, with Roy Riddick singing the lead, has a new rhythm with bongos and trumpets giving the song a real calypso flavor.
