Kevin Joyce: piano-accordion, piano
Mark Mohan: banjo
John McEvoy: fiddle

The music on this CD was recorded specifically for dancers. Tracks of reels, slip jigs, hornpipes, treble and light jigs are played at regulation tempos (indicated for each track), and there are even tracks timed for beginner dancers. Unexpectedly perhaps for this kind of recording, the music is quite good, and the choice of tunes, which include compositions by Paddy O'Brien, Josephine Keegan, Ed Reavy, Michael Rooney, and others, reveals the eclectic tastes of the musicians--in other words, it's not yet another recording of "Foxhunter's Jig" or "Sally Gardens"...
