Christmas Harp 2
'Christmas Harp 2', a sequel to harpist Cindy Horstman's 'Christmas Harp' (which cracked Amazon's Top 30 emerging Pop Artists Chart), is Cindy's approach to Christmas exactly the way it should be celebrated - solo harp in a warm, natural way playing peacefully yet slightly jazzy. Impeccably recorded and mastered by Engineer/Producer, Michael Medina, this CD cuts the anxiety and commercialism of Christmas with it's simplicity and beauty. This one - Christmas Harp 2 - is in my opinion even better than Cindy Horstman's first 'Christmas Harp' CD, but my Christmas CD collection would be incomplete without both of them. I pull these CD's out this time of year when I need de-grinching and I want to get into the right seasonal spirit. They do the job, too. Energetic but not frenetic, beautifully arranged and impeccably performed, these songs work as background music and are also total ear treats when you crank up the volume and really listen to them. I brought this CD into the office today and played it; people were stopping, popping their heads into my office, and enthusing over the music. Recording artist Cindy Horstman has reached out to all age groups with her music. Her unique, jazzy styl brings a fresh new sound to one of the oldest instruments known and loved by all, the harp. Cindy has earned many accolades including: Master of Music-University of Texas, Touring Artist-Texas Commission on the Arts 1996 - Present, Touring Artist - Arts Midwest, 2005 Jazz Artist of the Years - Sammons Center for the Arts Award Recipient-ASCAP Popular Music Award BAND_MEMBERS: Cindy Horstman - Harp.
