title A Song for the Gracie M. Parker
creator MacRae, Allan J.
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description <p>Among the hundreds of shipwrecks<br />in Prince Edward Island history,<br />the loss of the coasting schooner Grade<br />M. Parker is exceptional. It is one of<br />only a few Island shipwrecks to have<br />inspired a song, a song, moreover, that<br />is still known and sung in the West<br />Prince region of the province. That the<br />Gracie M. Parker persists in our folk<br />memory has something to do with the<br />nature of the song itself, but also, to the<br />circumstances surrounding the tragedy<br />that inspired it.</p>
