They retell personal tales from North and South. They relate the expectations of Irish, Scottish immigrants, and of African Americans. And they reprise the faith of a nation, torn as it was by this great Civil War. The album's CD liner notes provide important background information for each of the songs, including historical context and bibliographical reference. INTO THE WEST Into the West was recorded live at a performance of Into the West: Celts in Texas at the Pocket Sandwich Theater in Dallas, TX. on August 28th, 2002. The show focused on the Irish and Scots immigrants in Texas history. SOUL OF A WANDERER Produced by Paul Mills at the Millstream in Toronto, . . .

STREETS OF FALL RIVER "Streets of Fall River" is a collection of original and traditional songs drawn, in large part from the Irish immigrant experience, and has received critical acclaim from industry experts throughout the US and Europe
