This unique "session" style live album was recorded in the Nesbitt Family home in County Tipperary, at the foot of the Devil's Bit Mountain.

The album features 19 tracks and chats of live music performed by 3 generations of the Nesbitt Family featuring world renowned celtic violinist Mairead Nesbitt.

Mairead Nesbitt has returned to her roots in Co Tipperary, Ireland and created this album involving 13 members of the Nesbitt Family.

The youngest, Lilly is only 10 years old, and spans through to John Nesbitt who is 81 years young.

This was a very special project for these three generations and was a family affair from the content to the art direction. These are tunes that Kathleen and John Nesbitt learned from their parents and taught to their children and grandchildren.

Special guest and long-time family friend Eoghan O'Neill joined on acoustic bass and renowned producer Brian Masterson beautifully recorded, mixed and mastered this unique project produced by Mairead and Karl Nesbitt.
