Put together two renowned duos, two gifted sisters, two of the most creative and distinctive guitarists in the world and you get the multi-faceted quartet recording here together for the first time.
This album is an eclectic mix of music they love, from powerhouse Irish dance-music, gorgeous airs, old songs with a contemporary twist and striking new compositions - to bluegrass and ragtime rockabilly!
It was put together as the fancy took them: sophisticated, complex arrangements are interspersed with down-home tracks recorded live. Chris's sizzling guitar improvisations, Arty's rhythmic genius, Nollaig's heart-melting lyricism and Máire's plangent power have created a warm musical world where each shining individual is showcased and supported by the others.
Tracks run the whole gamut of moods from poignant and heartfelt to effervescent and joyful, finishing with the celebratory "session" at the end!
