Our home is located on a 30 acre organic homestead
overlooking a cedar swamp and lake. With the arrival of spring,
our land suddenly comes alive and we welcome unfolding of each leaf and
flower and the return of our feathered friends. It is a time of
great joy as we break ground and sow the seeds that will provide our
nurturance for the coming year.
In representing the season of spring, we have
added a little more energy than our other recordings. You will
still find the usual gently healing music interspersed with some
energetic toe tappers.
Some of our friends joined us and provided
instrumental voices that are not usually heard on Collecting Consort
recordings. We know you will enjoy this, our most recent
harp, keyboard, & harmonium.
I always enjoy the opportunity to work with other
musicians. They bring new ideas and provide me with a challenge to
venture into new areas. My thanks to all who joined us in making
Irish flutes & whistles, clarinet & pan flute.
New recording equipment and software provided me with an
exciting challenge on this recording. I was able to play
several instruments at the same time along with adding Anne's
keyboard to her harp with our new multitracking capacities.
Special thanks to all
those who helped me leave the dark ages of recording and move to the
magic of the digital world.
Gartner: Mandolin & Concertina
Bruce is a very talented multi-instrumental musician and lives for the
opportunity to play music, especially with others.
enjoy the opportunity to collaborate with him, and wish to thank him
for his willingness to add a special "aliveness" to our work.
Dennis is a high school choral director who has recently been
touched by the spirit of Celtic music and is adding Irish whistles
and Celtic harp to his instrumental capacities.
driving guitar served to push these 60 plus year old musicians
into a new expression of Celtic music.
(Tony) Patterson: piano, keyboard, arranging & technical
This multi-talented individual serves as the pianist for the
renown Alma College Choir and is a recognized soloist.
What amazes us about Tony is his desire to always be working the cutting
edge of our arrangements, digital technology and expanding our old
fashioned ways. We owe much to Tony for what he has added to our
ensemble and this recording.
Meet our local chiropractor. We
are always amazed at his capacity to adapt and add that special,
sensitive underpinning to our arrangements. He brings a lightness
and a living desire to "play music" rather than spending time creating
the "perfect note".
Marcella Rack: Piano
We have the opportunity to share with this very
talented musician each Sunday. She is our church pianist. Her
knowledge and interpretation of liturgical music demonstrates her
unusual spiritual presence which she so graciously shares with all.
