Full performer name: Frankie Kennedy/Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh.
Personnel: Frankie Kennedy (flute), Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh (vocals, fiddle), Mark Kelly (guitar), Ciaran Curran (bouzouki), Donal Lunny (bodhran, keyboards).
Additional personnel: Anna Ni Mhaonaigh (background vocals).
Recorded in Aigle Studios, Dublin, Ireland.
All songs are traditional except "The Sunset" (Cathal McConnell/Seamus Quinn) and "Loch Altan" (Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh).
This album is technically credited to Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh and Frankie Kennedy, but it's clearly the first step in Altan's development into a tight band. It's full of beautiful, fiery music, a little less dense and powerful than the later recordings. ~ Steve Winick
