Although traditional maritime music was something that many Canadians had heard about, Fare Thee Well Love was one of the first albums to successfully bring the tradition into the homes of people too embarrassed to pick up an Irish Rovers album. Most of the material is fairly traditional (some of it is even sung in Gaelic), but with more of a skew to the country music crowd than the pop crowd.

Absolutely phenominal! What unbridaled talent this family has!! More By The Rankin Family.

The Rankin Family are entrenched in the Canadian East Coast music scene. With just a hint of pop, the group take traditional Celtic melodic structures and mix it with more contemporary East Coast folk. Now, I had heard the Rankin Family on enumerable occasions throughout my childhood. My Uncle, who was already very fond of maritime music, and my parents both had fond respect for the group. Picking out the album centerpiece, the title track, can best show the songwriting capabilities of the Rankin’s. Fare Thee Well Love is a slow burning ballad that builds towards a cathartic ending. Starting with the low constant drone of an organ and a concertina, a lone male vocal melody is introduced. Soon, two more female vocals come into the piece and harmonize the male lead.
