Wind and Wood A Sylvan Dance - Celtic Muse

$14.00 - OUT OF STOCK

   Celtic Muse serendipitously came into being at a Renaissance theme wedding in 1995. Since that time, Jennifer and Valerie have carried their love of harps and traditional music out into the world, like small ripples ever broadening to span a limitless pond. Wind and Wood is their first collaborative recording.

Valerie Klemetti Blessley's love of playing music began with learning the flute as a child. She has studied the harp with David Harper, in Albuquerque, New Mexico and Marion Fouse in Portland, Oregon. She currently plays harp, flute, recorder, pennywhistle, and kantele. A degreed visual artist, Valerie assists in making harps when she's not playing them. She has also published a book of harp music entitled, Songs I Can Play.

Jennifer Pratt-Walter communicates her deep love of her instrument and music with her hands, searching to define and transcend human experience. She has played harp for fifteen years, and is an avid music arranger. Jennifer also plays recorders, and is exploring composing. 1998 brought her debut harp release, Ancient Realms, a magical journey to times of old.
