Mary Ann Kennedy and Charlotte Petersen : Strings Attached

Strings Attached

This is a lovely album of Gaelic song and harp tunes AVAILABLE AS DOWNLOAD ONLY.

Description

On this lovely, relaxing album, Mary Ann Kennedy and Charlotte Petersen combine their considerable talents to show off the harp to great advantage. The material is drawn mainly from the Celtic tradition but there is also Pachelbel's stately "Canon in D" and the jazz classic "Take Five". Mary Ann Kennedy is also a marvellous Gaelic singer and look out for her songs "An Eal’ air a’ Chuan" and the rhythmic waulking song "An Coire Riabhach" both of which are from South Uist. Both girls have self-penned tunes on this CD and Charlotte Petersen's gently swinging "One Hump or Two?" is a highlight. AVAILABLE AS DOWNLOAD ONLY.
