Two people on a small boat on the sea heading towards land in the distance with title ‘There Lies the Home’ in the bottom left corner

Few journeys on our planet are more dangerous than those across the oceans. There Lies the Home honors the courage, despair, and yearning of those who traverse these tumultuous blue unknowns seeking opportunity or adventure, as well as those fleeing persecution or stolen from their homes. With repertoire spanning such riveting sea shanties as Shenandoah, traditional spirituals like Steal Away, and the Lake Superior folk classic Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, There Lies the Home weaves together stories of the journey, what is left behind, and what is just beyond that blue horizon.
