Journeyman, songwriter Joe Flood brings his considerable storytelling skills to bear on A Troubadour’s Tour of Historic Nantucket, under the auspices of the Nantucket Historical Association (NHA). Flood spent months visiting the island and researching its 400 year history to capture in intimate vignettes the boom and bust of the one-time whaling capital of the world and its rebirth as an art colony and summer vacation destination. “A Troubadour’s Tour” is Joe Flood’s 6th record. He has also written and recorded with The Band, the Bottle Rockets, and more.
