Walt Cronin came into being a serious folk singer songwriter around the age of 50. His life experiences as a medic in Vietnam and somewhat nomadic life after wards are the source of many of the folk songs he has written about relationships, societal issues, love songs and light-hearted fare which make up the content of what is his 3rd CD released in June 2010. Walt's goal was to reflect the sincerity of folk music history while placing the songs in a contemporary setting. The collaborators achieved their aims with his friend Martin Beal providing detailed arrangements and a fine editing ear while playing a myriad ofinstruments (guitars, keyboards, bass, mandolin, melodica, bouzouki, hurdy-gurdy, percussion,) as well as performing all drum programming. Quote: "Tender and introspective songs with the kind of realness and authenticity that is becoming quite rare." Alt-country, Americana, Folk Beeb Ashcroft Indie-Music
