In Their Words: “Over the past couple of years, I have been going through the process of getting my U.S. Green Card, so the reality of emigration/immigration was very present in my world. Contemplations like 'What and where is home?' were never far from my thoughts. Around the same time, my interest in Irish roots music and folk ballads was rekindled. My head and heart were back in that musical world. Having to deal with the issues of immigration while going back to the music I grew up playing is how this record was born. The project is my story — it’s who I am at this time in my life.” — Ben Glover
