This CD was recorded live in 2007 at Bantry House and a tribute concert in Ennis, and was launched post-humously at the 2009 Willie Clancy Summer School. Kitty is featured on all the cuts, along with Eoin O’Neill (bouzouki), Martin Hayes (fiddle), Peter Laban (pipes), Josephine Marsh (fiddle and box), Mick Kinsella (harmonica and concertina), Dympna O’Sullivan (concertina), Tim Dennehy (vocals), and Dennis Cahill (guitar). Even on the cuts when the whole ensemble is playing, Kitty’s instantly recognizable style shines through. Superd.

That would be "superb."

A lot of the tunes are in F and the whole Cd has accompanists who tuned down or had ‘flat’ pipes or a box in C/F
