In Their Words: “‘West Bay Road’ starts with an O’Carolan piece, a famous Irish composer. Then followed by a tune written for a good family friend who was battling cancer at the time of the recording. He unfortunately didn’t make it and has passed on since, but he got to hear his jig before he died. It will always be a special tune for me.” — Natalie MacMaster
