Original, traditional and folk songs of America and Ireland. From the humorous "New Age Swing" co-written with former Bitchin' Babe Camille West to a recording of the Irish Gaelic "Raftery" to Susan's award-winning "Mountain Waters."

"Every now and then you come across a simple pleasure that must be shared… about one of the real talents in folk music today. The guest artist list, in addition to Susan's silken playing and singing, makes this one of my favorite CDs in a rather eclectic collection. Susan's voice is haunting and true and the playing precise, yet heartfelt. Susan considers herself an 'unreconstructed folkie.' You don't need to be one to fall in love with this music." --
