Mom in the Mirror
Written by Linda Buckley and performed by the “Buckley Women” SE Alaska Folk Festival.
Written by Linda Buckley in response to the Exxon Valdez oil spill. It was inspired by one of Linda’s second-grade students, Lydia, whose grandmother lived in Cordova and was affected directly by the spill. All marine life, shorebirds and sea mammals were covered in oil and many died.
Rockin’ the Shipping Lanes
Composed and performed by Linda Buckley. Originally submitted for a contest to promote awareness of proposed cutbacks to the Alaska Marine Highway. This is a set of ferry boats that carry cars and passengers throughout Southeast Alaska due to the lack of roads between those coastal cities. Instead of a “car” highway, it is a “marine” highway.
