$14.00 - In stock - Ships within 24 hours

Jennifer Pratt-Walter, harp, alto recorder, soprano recorder, pennywhistle
Alicia Vasey, viola
Harvey Clawson, piano
  
Step through a sonorous portal to the past with Celtic harp and friends.
Experience song from Ancient Greece to the Middle Ages, from the
Nordic lands to the green British Isles to the shores of early America,
linking distant times to a new resonance of unity and understanding
through song. Music is like that...

Jennifer has been playing Celtic harp since 1984, and still learns new things all the time. She performs with Valerie Blessley in the duo Celtic Muse, and has recorded three other albums, solo and duo. She teaches, performs, composes, arranges, and does volunteer work with her music. Visit Lyrica Press on the web for fine harp music arrangements. Jennifer won top prizes several times at the Pacific NW Scottish harp competition. In addition, she finds time to nurture her family and farm in Vancouver, WA. Please write her at Lyrica@comcast.net for questions and comments. Thank you for supporting independent artists with the purchase of this CD!
