These songs have been with Peggy Seeger her whole life. She has sung at the gallows (Hang Me, Newly Town) and she has known the women who rarely return from the no-gooder's charm (Roving Gambler). She has been acquainted with Molly Bond and Dink (Dink's Song).
As in the previous releases which make up the Home triology—Heading For Home(2003) and Love Call Me Home (2005)—her ageless and unaffected voice is accompanied by sparse, yet superior, instrumental support, namely her own banjo, guitar, and concertina. Son and producer Calum MacColl also enters the mix on guitar and harmonium as does other son Neill MacColl on autoharp and mandolin.
