At Home features fiddler Rosie Shipley and pianist Matt Mulqueen with Rosie's brothers Peter (fiddle) and Trevor (uilleann pipes, flute, whistle) in the first traditional album to encompass the music of two islands: Ireland and Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Perhaps more unusual is that At Home was recorded in two days without studio wizardy to emulate the vibrancy of the early fiddle recordings. "Nothing was added after we finished recording," says Rosie. "What you hear is Matt, my brothers, and me sitting around playing tunes like we do at home."

At Home is a burst of raw, untamed energy that is a welcome addition to a Celtic music market saturated with slick, mainstream productions. Rosie, Matt, Peter, and Trevor are truly at home and having fun with their music, and this shines through in every note.
