Will Millar, with the help of fellow musician and Grammy award winner Paul Horn, has created in the truest Celtic Music tradition a stunning fusion of music and history that draws upon memories of Ireland, old family tales, and historical records that tell of the devastation and mass emigration that lay in the wake of the Irish Potato Famine of the mid 1800's. Spirited jigs, reels, and melancholy ballads call out from a time never to be forgotten, as the boats left Ireland behind for a chance at a better life and a new beginning in Canada, America, Australia and New Zealand.
