Seven musicians: Tristan Le Govic (Celtic harp & vocals), Lise Enochsson (vocals), Stuart Macpherson (bass), Roy Shearer (drums), Per Nord (drums), André Le Meut (bombarde) and Pascal Lamour (biniou). To this list, we gladly add Olle Grane (mixing and mastering), Johann Guillon (graphics) and Erik Enochsson (photos).

A Breton Finn, another one Swedish. A Czech Breton, another one Swedish.
