Debut album from Yvonne Bolton (Killeshin, Co Laois) and Alan Jordan (Curraghmore, near Claremorris, Co Mayo), launched at the Pan Celtic festival in Carlow. Two thirds of the album consist of original material while the rest comes primarily from the Irish traditional repertoire, with the combination of concertina and guitar as the core sound. The arrangements vary from basic concertina and guitar to bigger sounds, incorporating the use of fiddle, low whistle, cello, piano, bass and bodhrán, with Alan also singing two songs.

Track 10 is a song written by Alan Jordan.

The three tunes comprising track 11 are all mazurkas.
