Ian Millar: my cousin from the town of Ballymena. Guitars that sing easy and sweet.
Davey Walker: raised in the cathedral city of Armagh. Ivory keys that sparkle and create perfect arrangements to the old Ballads.
Mary Murphy: spent her first years on the harp as one of those ladies of Bunratty Castle in Limerick, Her playing conjures up those days of Mead and great feasts in the Earl Thormond Great Hall.
Moritz O'Beum: The Celtic Bohemian Fiddle croons Irelands ancient melody.

Denis Donnelly: There's the breath of his native Scotland in the Lute and harp. His harp melodies graced my first Chacra release, " Lark In The Clear Aire". Denis arranges all the sweet cello melodies for our…
Joyce Menting: who performs with the Victoria Symphony and her own string quartet, "Savitri".
Reay Sutter: His little harmonica can become a Celtic Symphony when the old soul of the Celt is shaken loose.
With a Gypsy pack of penny whistles, harmonicas, Celtic harps, fiddles stringed instruments of various tunings and magical musical keyboards we wove this Celtic patchwork. Most of these melodies were born on nights in the North Antrim countryside of long ago. There is a host of fine memories in these tunes. There are faces and laughter and soft loving daydreams that live on and on. The players are my friends and like all good friends we found a way to celebrate the life and our heritage that gave us this music.
Here's to Joy & Peace
