Eileen Quinn (bluewater songs) where is she?

I met Eileen on the Rio Dulce in '94-96. Followed her music since, but lost all track of her since 2007. Does anyone know what has become of this wonderful spirit?

I too would like to have an update on Eileen. Have all of her music, which is truly unique and almost all sailing related and reality based.

Hmm, if nobody here knows of her, maybe she became a 'Dirt Dweller' (one of her songs). Post if you have any update.

We used to run into her often, but not for a long time. I think the last album she did was in 2007. Chuck

Thanks, Chuck.

We did hear through the grapevine that they were building a cabin somewhere around Ontario. She certainly seems to have just dropped off the radar. Chuck

Chuck & Loecat: don't do much Internet (only have an iPhone) but after some searching I found that Chuck Is right and David and Eileen did settle in Canada near Lake Ontario.

Then they sold Little Gidding.
...from a cruiser's blog:
6/24/07
"...e what was up. We had a very pleasant conversation with Rene - the new owner - and confirmed that Eileen and David are entertaining lucky passengers on cruises on Lake Killarney this summer."

Since they have chosen to live a life with no public exposure, I will honor their choice and not add any more information that goes beyond my original question: Where is Eileen Quinn now?

Continue to enjoy Eileen's músic as I and all those who lived that magical experience shall.

Thanks Solar for the info on Eileen. She is the real deal and we play her music almost every day, on and off the boat. Would love to meet her one day. Back when we purchased all of her CD's in '06 or '07, we received an e-mail from her thanking us with other content which certainly seemed authentic. She has remained one of our favorites. Hopefully she monitors this site and knows that she has made a lasting impression on so many of us. It seems so easy for so many to do songs of sailing and of the sea. Few have actually walked the walk as she has.

Thank You Eileen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Myrna and Earl, S/V "ROSA"

Unfortunately she passed away. I found a song of hers on youtube () and four of her albums are available on Spotify.

Funny that you should have met Eileen Quinn on the Rio Dulce in the early 90s; that's where I met her there about a decade after you.

I think the Forbidden Love Eileen Quinn is different from our musical Eileen Quinn who moved to Canada with her husband to help with her aging parents.

Her website doesn’t mention her passing.

That's a redesigned website, so maybe she's planning to cruise again.
