From the publisher: Kate MacLeod and Kat Eggleston's duo CD features a mix of original and traditional songs and instrumentals. Kat's fans will be delighted that her hammer dulcimer playing steps out on several tunes, including the title track, an original composition. The legendary "Two Sisters" ballad takes on a haunting new life here, sung as a dialog in two voices, bring this American version of the story into startling focus. Kate's stellar traditional fiddling is featured as well. Her "Tom Egan" deals with the first capital punishment case in the Dakota territories in 1882. Years in the writing, it stands well next to the great traditional ballads, raising questions we have yet to answer.
