This EP/mini-album is a mixture of local tunes that Maura plays and others that she picked out from the new archive of Sliabh Luachra music at worldfiddledayscartaglin.ie

Maura is accompanied throughout by Kevin Murphy on mandola - Kevin is a member of a very musical family and his brother is the well known accordion player Donal Murphy of Sliabh Notes, Four Men and a Dog and others.

Track 6 begins with a duet between Maura and Thomas Barrett. It's a waltz they composed together during the lockdown and it's called after an area near Brosna and Knocknagoshel called the Black Banks. Thomas also plays with the popular Killarney based band The Rising.
