Thousands of miles away in America, William Coulter fell in love with the music and language that came over the sea from the beautiful land of Ireland. His interpretations of these jigs, reels and airs reflect his deep reverence for tradition, along with his unique creative response as an individual musician - hurrah for the folk process! Joined by guests including Shelley and Barry Phillips, Irish fiddler extraordinaire Kevin Burke and others, the tunes include beloved traditionals The Lark in the Morning, Si bheag, Si mhor, Banish Misfortune, Lagan Love, The Kesh Jig and Return to Fingal. You'll also find unexpected treasures including the lullaby Einini, Ay Linda Amiga from Celtic Spain, and the Victorian Marble Halls.
