I just purchased this album, and it is fantastic. Track 10 is a particularly special arrangement, as Kathleen and Hughie play along with the composer, her grandfather, Neillidh Boyle who passed away in 1961.

I had the pleasure of meeting Kathleen several times, and she is not only a wonderful player, but a genuinely nice girl.

Very Nice CD

Got this CD at a Cherish the Ladies concert recently. Quite nice — a wonderful collection of tunes!!! I echo Red Crow’s comments about Kathleen — she’s a very talented pianist and box player who’s got a great personality (and a quick wit to boot!).
