This CD features 12 Irish & Celtic traditional favorites, in beautiful & tasteful instrumental arrangements.

Acoustic guitars, Irish flutes, Pennywhistle, violin, piano, accordion and various percussion make up a nicely balanced, rich but still understated, production.

Bjørn Lynne set to work producing this album after spending time in the Irish countryside (more precisely along the Southern coast of Ireland) in 2007. No detail was spared in the arrangements or production. Bjørn himself plays guitars, bass and keyboards, while Steinar Borvik plays various Irish flutes, Nicolae Bogdan on accordian and violin, and Jeremy Sherman on Dobro and Slide guitar.

If you would like a CD that sets an Irish, Celtic mood but is not overwhelming or shouting, this should be a perfect match.

As a bonus feature, this CD contains 12 additional CD-tracks after the main 12 tracks, and the additional tracks are all 12 tracks again, without the main lead/solo instruments. This makes the bonus tracks great for singing-along or playing-along with the tracks, great for learning to play, or simply to enjoy a subtle Irish / Celtic background mood, without outstanding lead instruments. When you remove the main lead instrument from a production, it sheds a whole new light on the composition and gives a unique and enjoyable insight into the "workings" of the music, behind the scenes so to speak.
