This is a somewhat unlikely combination, but one that works superbly well. The London-based American guitar wizard, Duck Baker combines with flutist and singer Maggie Boyle and our local fiddling superstar, Ben Paley.

With Maggie having a London Irish background and Ben's parents being American, the theme of the album and its name comes from people who are living away from their cultural and musical roots. The songs and tunes come from America and Ireland and there is some glorious singing and playing throughout.

The high spots include Maggie's beautiful singing of "A Youth Inclined To Ramble", Duck's slow and majestic rendition of "Sean O'Dwyer of the Glen" and any time when the fiddle and flute are heard together, but particularly on their beautiful setting of "The Blackbird."
