    Songs and Stories

    An enchanting album of Celtic music on the neo-Celtic and wire-strung harps, along with Joanna’s beautiful and expressive singing in English and Gaelic, and two original stories accompanied by harp music. “A captivating Celtic chronicle…of yearning ballads performed with sweet grace, haunting airs with tangible tang. (Joanna) weaves a colorful tapestry of (Carolan’s) rise from awful…to king musician for the queen of the fairies. Mell’s singing is ribboned, silky, hypnotic. Her soft, throaty speaking transforms stories into lullabies…Mell fulfills her goal of recreating a hearth-side performance in an 18th-century manor house.” – Geoff Gehman of “The Morning Call”, Bethlehem, PA.
