Susan McKeown, Cathie Ryan, and Robin Spielberg
It is a mellow-sounding album. It also achieves the effect of an Irish sesiun—where songs (vocal) are interspersed with instrumentals, and instrumentals are usually sets of 3 different timings—between the vocals of the 3 women, Robin's piano work, and additional instrumentation.
