Exuberant and expressive vocals are supported with Julia's Lane's unique award-winning Celtic harp style, and Fred Gosbee's expertise on 12-string guitar, violin and woodwinds.
 
Since 1984 Castlebay has created a body of work which celebrates Maine’s maritime heritage and environment. Julia Lane and Fred Gosbee have loved and researched traditional music for most of their lives. Known for their intelligent arrangements of traditional music, they have also received critical praise for their evocative original compositions.
 
Many of their songs have as themes the lives of those who live by the sea, not only the deep water sailors, but also the shipwrights, coasters, fisherman and their wives. These are the people who established Maine as a maritime legend and who continue to build that legend with their daily lives of skill, hard work and pride.
