Sleeve Notes

I suppose it was my good fortune to be born into an Ireland where the racial and traditional memory still survived, where much of the old and ancient aura can still be found, especially in the people still possessed in this day and age with a quizzical sense of wonder. It's far from dead, thank God, this interweaving of centuries of dim rememberings, half-forgotten things, myth and history, men and magic. I am in awe of it. It has brought me here, and a rich road it's been to travel. These are some of the songs I learned on the way.
