With Andrew Forbes on borderpipes and whistle, Amy Beshara, Calum Pasqua, Karen Brown, and Hannah Marie on fiddles, Max Carmichael on banjo and guitar, Matt Diaz on guitar, Bram Pomplas on bodhran and Leah Rankin on cello, this album is a rich, textured display of musical depth that regularly played at the Iona pub in Brooklyn.
