Album Review
Reviewed 2005-03-21 
Traditional and original Celtic music. Led by singer/fiddler Mairead ni Mhaonaigh who has a light soprano voice that does well by these tunes. Acoustic guitar/fiddle/accordion/ pipes/ whistle and bouzouki. Lyrics in English and Gaelic.

*1. Light, bouncy w/sweet vocals & fiddle.
*2. Instrumental set of 4 reels for fiddle/guitar/whistles.
3. A jig & a reel. Bodhran/whistle/fiddle/guitar. Very nice.
4. Relaxed, midtempo folk song.
5. A march, a highland, and a jig. Instrumental dances, well played.
6. Lyrical & lazy. Vox/strings/accordion. Good work from all.
7. Midtempo instrumental w/a warm, happy feel.
8. Slow & delicate. A sad song of love.
9. A simple but engaging jig. Mandolin adds a nice touch.
*10. A classic reel leads into 2 more bright & catchy dances.
*11. Midtempo, toe-tapping little song of murder & mayhem.
12. Two happy little dances. Slip jig and jig. Nice arrangement.
13. Delicate and very pretty lullaby.
