Meet Lee Murdock, broadly acknowledged as the premier interpreter of songs and tales about the Great Lakes. Lee Murdocks work is an anthem to the people who live, work, and play along the freshwater highways of North America.

His concerts invoke a sense of place, but it is a universal place, and a timeless repertoire that celebrates the North American people, their triumphs and tragedies, work songs and pastimes.
