Ronan Browne: uilleann pipes, flute
Peter O'Loughlin: flute, fiddle
Maeve Donnelly: fiddle
Geraldine Cotter: piano

A sequel to Browne and O'Loughlin's great "South West Wind," this is perhaps even better. 23 tracks of heavenly "pure drop" traditional music, mostly well-known tunes, but played with great style, at an easy pace, and with that richness of the flat instruments the musicians use--Browne plays pipes pitched in B and a a Bb flute, while O'Loughlin plays B and Bb fiddles as well as an Eb flute. Just gorgeous.
