Liner notes

This album was recorded live in Cork at Éigse Na Laoi 1995: The Gathering. Like good music which does not want to stop, its end was its beginning. Another round was called, and everyone knew the tune – a tune that spins now like the globe itself, creating a celestial music for all who will listen.
