Irish singer Karan Casey, formerly with Ireland’s noted group Solas, performs a retelling of the myth that inspired the moving family film, "The Secret of Roan Inish." Casey tells and sings of a Silkie, a seal maiden who shed her skin, was trapped in human form, married and had a son. Born in a seal-skin "with the ocean in his heart-beat," the little boy is destined to discover his own dual nature and help his mother find her long lost home, too.

A host of other singers and musicians bring the fantasy to life with Celtic instruments and the haunting, dancing sound of traditional Celtic music—you won’t easily forget the lovely song that begins and ends the tale, "We’re Going Sailing."
