Thanksgiving- a time for convivial gatherings of friends and family from near and far; celebrations in gratitude for loved ones, bountiful harvests, and good health. These musical selections reflect loving relationships, journeys made over bonnie hill and dale, the warmth of house and hearth, and the simple gifts of good food and drink.

Going Home cover
Going Home / Thanksgiving Music for Celtic Harp
This recording is a harvest of melodies from the American Celtic folk tradition arranged mostly for solo Celtic harp (nylon strings) One one track is a second, wire string harp. Some additional sounds include with just a wee bit of Irish flute, a breath of choir, a touch of percussion, a dash of violin, a pinch of viola, and a soupçon of French horn (in a duet with pennywhistle).

The Thanksgiving holiday is a special time of homecoming and hospitality. The music of this season stirs memories of home and hearth, bounty and peace. We reflect on our heritage in gratitude for our many blessings, for the beauty of the earth itself and for the amazing grace that keeps us filled with hope. Many of us travel over the river and through the wood to be among ones so dear for a friendly visit and a feast with the old folks at home. We gather together around the laden table in the warmth of a familiar circle and welcome both friend and stranger. When we finally drink a parting glass, we realize we are always renewed by going home.

Imram cover
This recording is a compilation of the most serene tunes from the Tapestry series.

In the Celtic tradition, an Imram is a journey to the inner realms of dream and vision. Here, the magical strains of the Celtic harp interweave with strings, woodwinds, and ethereal voices providing a vehicle for the journey. The warm sound of hand-crafted instruments recalls romantic images of a bygone era. This timeless quality evokes the moods and seasons of a beautiful garden and glimpses of mysterious islands emerging from shimmering mist. The listener returns from the Imram relaxed, rejuvenated, and inspired.
