In 1980 or '81 the German company Folk Freak decided to make a follow up to their successful "Folk Friends" album. The idea was to get together a bunch of musicians from different countries and see what happened. What happened was Folk Friends 2

Andy Irvine and myself had known each other for years but never really played much together but after collaborating on a couple of things on Folk Friends 2 we felt there was further exploration to be done and this album was the result.
