Sleeve Notes

This album represents a drawing together of the many different strands that constitute the exceptionally fine musical fabric of Dolores Keane and John Faulkner. They are joined here by many of their close musical friends. Dolores's aunt Sarah Keane, one of the most respected solo singers in Ireland sings an unusual duet of 'Sail Og Rua' with Dolores. Jackie Daly, Máirtín O Connor, James Kelly, Jackie Small, and Eamonn Curran — all highly acclaimed musicians — give of their best on both instrumental and vocal tracks. And to these traditional sounds is added the music of Paul Barrett, playing the Fairlight Computer Musical Instrument.
