This is an album that myself and my husband Éamon worked on with top singer and instrumentalist Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh from Co Kerry, Ireland, and super-charged guitarist Ross Martin from Lochaber. In the album, we explore the close links (and also the differences) between Gaelic Scotland and Ireland. We would like to thank the “Deis” scheme from the Arts Council of Ireland and the Columba Initiative for all their valuable help and support.
