These familial Nova Scotians, consisting of siblings Ciarán and Fiona MacGillivray and Jimmy and Roseanne MacKenzie, have crafted an impeccably played and produced collection of covers and traditional works that will appeal to fans of the Corrs, as well as fellow Canadians Great Big Sea. The quartet is at its best when plowing through traditional reels, jigs, and polkas like "Miss Casey Medley: Miss Casey's Jig/The Humours of Ballinafauna" and " Honeysuckle Medley," but their choice of covers — the nubile merrymakers must have been recently introduced to the music of Tom Waits, as they cover "Hold On" and "Georgia Lee" off of his 1999 album Mule Variations — leave little doubt that they aim for a career outside of the Celtic genre. Time will tell.
