GONE: The Mystery of the Don Disaster Soundtrack
Artist/Band: Dave Wilkinson
Gone: The mystery of the DON disaster explores the strange disappearance in 1941 of the pleasure craft DON with 34 people onboard. The sea of the rocky coast of Maine has held its secrets about this terrible loss of life ever since. The event remains one of New England's worst boating disasters.
The doomed passengers boarded the 44' DON with only lobster and fun on their minds. Little did they know that their rum-runner Captain was transporting them on a raucous ride to sudden death.
No one lived to tell their tale nor have those left behind been able to to unlock the secrets in the intervening years. Until now. An adventurous team of filmmakers explore the mystery and in the process add a new chapter to this maritime disaster's story.
The one-hour documentary, shot in high definition at the original Maine locations, is an intriguing reminder of life's unpredictability.
Dave Wilkinson's all-original soundtrack evokes the mood of the early 1940s through orchestras, string quartet, swing and dixie bands, contrasted with guitar and celtic accordion. Jim Gallant's haunting ballad tells the story along with his acoustic guitar virtuosity. Jim Stewart's electric guitar provides the punctuation.
