This album is a tribute to the family members who started our musical journey in life, which resulted in the formation of Glenrose in 1991, and continues today with their Great Grandchildren. It is a compilation of band recordings accumulated between 1998 and 2013. Original tunes are combined with traditional Irish, Scottish, English, Scandanavian, Quebecois, American, and Eastern European dance tunes and music. The setting of the tunes was inspired by the family homestead in 'The Hollow' in rural Upstate New York, and is intended to create a broad tapestry of moods and sound.
