The title for this album is indeed very well chosen and self-explanatory. Let me say that there are no airs and graces here. The music springs out of the deep recesses of the pure and natural tradition, bouncing along over rocks and boulders like a mountain stream in full spate, a reminder of the open-hearth fires, flagged-floored kitchens, half-doors and thatched roofs of the Ireland of my youth, where the music found its home and where it flourished in its natural surroundings.� � Ben Lennon\r\n\r\n

�Dave and Mick are master musicians no doubt about it, they have the credentials: the track record, the bands, albums and collaborations, but here you get more than just great musicianship, you get a dialogue, a conversation happening now, not parroted lines from some slickly rehearsed ensemble, that is the real excitement here. Clearly they have practiced long and hard, there are gaps and stops and changes of rhythm, which the boys hit spot on, but you�d be forgiven if you thought they�d just walked into the pub and played straight of the cuff.� - Se�n Laffey\r\n\r\n

Mick Conneely: Mick is one of the most respected fiddle players of his generation. He has played and toured with many artists, including De Danann, Mary Bergin, Frankie Gavin, and M�irt�n O'Connor among others. In 2001 his debut solo album, Selkie, was released to critical acclaim on the Cl� Iar-Chonnacht label.\r\n\r\n

David Munnelly: David Munnelly was born into a musical family and was surrounded by music from a very early age. He set up the David Munnelly Band in 1999, and in that same year he recorded his debut CD, entitled Swing. He recorded three other CDs with the band and has toured extensively\r\n\r\n
