Instrumental guitar is featured heavily, with several compositions by Celtic harpist Turlough Carolan, a ragtime tune composed by Pete Norman, the classical Pavanne by Ravel, and a soaring and rolling 12-string guitar instrumental in the seven-minute title cut, Wayfaring Stranger. Lee's arrangement of Wayfaring Stranger was inspired by a performance by the legendary singer, Odetta, at the Summerfolk Festival in Owen Sound, Ontario.
The recording was a solid collection of traditional songs, including the first recording of some of Lee's still-favorite Great Lakes maritime tunes (Persia's Crew, and The Lumberman's Alphabet), and the bluesy After You've Gone.
