I’d like to personally thank all the gifted musicians on the recording for helping Emma to dance through the many sound colorings, harmonies, and textures we produced.
Special thanks also to Hilary Condon for the notes to “Sliabh na m Ban,” More Music for lending us the violin, Olav Johansson for lending us his nyckelharpa, Mary McLaughlin for teaching me “Gabham Molta Bríde,” and Blue Lion Dulcimers.
Extra special thanks to William and Steve Coulter, whose inspiration,
arrangement skills, and sense of humor made this project an absolute joy.
