I have this CD on loan from the library at the "Plockton School Of Excellence In Traditional Music". How it got to west of Scotland , I’ve no idea, but there’s some very good playing on it indeed, in particular, some fine fiddle-playing and whistle playing.
My only minor gripe is that it’s all a bit like the sets were put together for a "Grupai Ceol" competition, and tends to be a bit over-arranged for my simplistic tastes.
Recorded in 2002, the players are :
Anna Colliton - bodhran
Marta Cook - harp
Kathy Goodkin - whistle, low whistle
Dan O’Dea - fidlle, viola
Alexa Janina Ramirez - cello
Devin Shepherd - fiddle
Michael O’Regan - guitar
Noel Rice - flute - and musical director.
