More information, please ?

So who’s playing what on it ? The track titles don’t tell us much either.

Google is our friend:

Jon Sanders(bouzouki), Neil Lyons (bodhrán), Enda Scahill (banjo), Malachy Bourke (fiddle) Éamonn De Barra (flute), Timmy Mc Carthy, Peter Browne (accordion), Deirdre Scanlan (vocals), Elaine Hogan (harp) and Benny O’ Carroll.

Well, Peter, Google isn’t being entirely friendly since the male singer on the album is Seán Garvey.

Sessions from the hearth

I got this cd direct from Enda Scahill in a pub in Galway several years ago and I have to say it is very good - I’ve learn’t a good few of the tunes from it and heartily recommend it - I’m surprised it hasn’t been added to the recordings long ago - the tune titles are bit vague - if no one else does it in the meantime I will add the actual tune names in a couple of weeks when I get back from Sidmouth festival
