Karen Ashbrook—hammered dulcimer, wooden flute, pennywhistle
Andrea Hoag—fiddled on 3 tracks
Restful—even the lively tracks. Great for relaxing listening, though the musicians are so good it also rewards close attention. Any fan of Celtic-flavoured music will enjoy this. Tracks like "Style Musette" add different sounds (here French). (firstname.lastname@example.org)
