From the recording Web In The Corner
Acoustic guitar work soars with Celtic detail. The song tells the story of an unfortunate Barred Owl that must remain forever in captivity. The lyrics find a good balance, not preachy, but an invitation to embrace an expanded view of the world. The rich female alto singer is sensitive to dynamics and a delight to hear.
"New England Wildlife Center in South Weymouth, Ma once introduced me to a Barred Owl named Ottis. Ottis was a teaching owl, no longer able to stay out in the wild. The opportunity to visit with Ottis, to look into those amazing eyes really taught me a lot. I had to write a song! Enjoy this wonderful world we share!" -Colette O'Connor
