Sleeve Notes

This the first record by the Hennessys since they were joined by the well-known singer from Anglesey, Aloma Jones. She brings with her a new dimension, both vocally and with the addition of a new instrument, the harp, to the previous combination of guitar and mandolin. The line-up blends together perfectly to produce on this record a varied harmonious collection of songs which you will find yourself playing over and over again.
