There are also touching duets with two of Ireland ‘s finest female vocalists, folk singer Mary Black and Rock singer-songwriter Gemma Hayes. The Album ends with three bonus live tracks featuring guest appearances from Donovan and Tom Paxton joining Liam’s regular musicians Kevin Evans and Paul Grant with members of traditional Irish band Danú including singer Muireann NicAmhlaoibh and Slide fiddler Daire Bracken.
