The musical traditions of Ireland come alive through the playing of England-based duo Anglim and Gittens. With Allister Gittens providing warm, acoustic guitar accompaniment, Irish fiddler Carlene Anglim soars with a rarely heard brilliance and emotional strength. According to Folkworld, (Anglim) "plays with such a deep feeling for the music -- she plays directly out of her heart." Anglim, who won the BBC2 Young Tradition award in 1993, garnered acclaim for her fiddling in the traditional folk band Bohinta in 1996. She teamed with Gittens the following year.
