AllMusic Review by

The soundtrack from the critically acclaimed new film by celebrated director John Sayles features original music composed by Mason Daring, mixed with traditional Celtic folk songs. Popular Celtic artists Maire Breatnach and Eileen Loughnane are also on hand, performing the album's three haunting vocal tracks. Produced and arranged by Daring, the instrumentation includes flutes, whistles, fiddles, Celtic harp and mandocello and the Hawthorne String Quartet. The film itself is an enchanting fairy tale about family tradition and renewal, and this soundtrack captures its essence beautifully.
