Polymath that she is, Emer Mayock not only pushes musical boundaries but also manages to fly a magnificent flag on behalf of her (all too few) sisters in trad with this gem of an album. We've had a long wait since her 1996 debut; with no less than a dozen tunes hewn from within, Mayock fuses past and present with an ear ever trained on a seamless rendering. Consorting lithely with flute, cello, pipes, whistle and fiddle, she waltzes, reels and jigs like few others. Exceptional music, remarkable musician.
