The musicians in Innisfall are Clio Cadence on vocals and guitar/ukulele, Sarah Copus on vocals and harp, Ireland Harber on vocals and whistle, Grace Kennedy on vocals and flute, and Nathan Kennedy on fiddle.

The music on this CD is a blend of lush Clannad like harmonies with an Americana folk feel. The band’s rendition of Loreena McKennit’s All Souls Night is a melodic delight. And the traditional I Know My Love has a sweet-sounding dance beat with 5 layers of harmonies. The band also provided three original compositions with an Irish/American folk flare and mentored by some of the tradition’s great artists. Two were original songs by the band, and the third was a poem written by Irish poet Thomas Moore in the early 1800s and put to music.
