The album is a collection of traditional material and explores a unique repertoire of songs from both sides of the Atlantic and continues Byrne's journey through his own unique musical lineage-the weaving of a great story with a beautiful melody-and he supports this tradition with powerful vocals, polished guitar work, and a presence that fills a room.
The album contains 11 tracks and here are the titles:
Long Years Ago - The River Driver - Go To The Sea No More - Sarah Jane - The Woods of Truagh
Nancy From London - Wedding Waltz - Farewell To Tarwathie - Adelaide - Kitty Bawn O'Brien
The album was recorded, engineered and mixed by Billy Sutton (The Fables) at Sound Solution in St. John's, NL and mastered by Jason Whelan at The Sound Solution.
All songs are traditional except:
Wedding Waltz & Adelaide written by Matthew Byrne
Go To The Sea No More written by Cob O'Brien and Ronnie Power
Kitty Bawn O'Brien written by Allister MacGillivray
