Barnes & Noble - Carol Wright
Some musical collaborations reach fondly beyond the recording studio, and the partnership of guitarists Al Petteway and Amy White is one heartwarming example. Their mutual love and respect is evident on every track of this album, whether accelerating the rapid-fire passages of the title tune with White taking the bristling finger work on the mandolin, weaving bittersweet harmonies on "Mariposa" and "Desert Dance," or layering smooth vocals to "Polly Vaughn" and "She Moved Through the Faire." They've included some Celtic and bluegrass flavors, with lots of spirited fingerpicking to keep things buoyant.

Adding further warmth and drive is Paddy League on percussion and Irish bodhran. You just can't beat the combination of fun and talent, and it's all here in abundance.
