Harpist, singer and television personality, Kathleen Watkins, is married to ireland's best known tv and radio presenter, Gay Byrne, who wrote the sleeve notes for this release.
Gay wrote: 'i believe kathleen to be the best speaker of poetry i have heard. she has a particularly pleasing and mellow voice, but from long interest in the works of poets, she is able to extract much more meaning from the words than is evident from just a reading. in various gatherings through the years i have seen her provoke a tear or two with her voicing of seamus heaney's and patrick kavanagh's pieces.' the readings are accompanied by film of some of ireland's beautiful locations.
