"Flying Cloud"

Here is a new tune I wrote and recorded.  It has a bit of a rolling feel to it, and reminds me of the motion of a sailing vessel, so I named it "Flying Cloud" after the famous clipper ship that set the record for the fastest passage between New York and San Francisco.  "Flying Cloud" made the record passage in 1853, taking 89 days 8 hours.  She held this record for 135 years, until 1989!

Anyway, the song "Flying Cloud" has a bluegrass flavor, featuring resophonic guitar accompanied by piano, pipes, and mandolin.  Hope you like it.
