Heart Strings : Traditions
"Music for the Soul", St. Petersburg Times, March 2004 The music is traditional - heritage US, Celtic, and Florida Folk. It bonds with your soul. On Traditions Marg (harp) and Bill (guitar) are joined by Robbie (flutes) to create a delightful instrumental CD that captures the spirit of the USA. Tunes range from early Celtic airs to Minstrel tunes and recent compositions. This is CD is as varied as the artists. Marg is a Scottish Harp Master and music practitioner. Robbie's flute skills are in high demand for sessions, dance bands, and studio work. Bill specializes in backup and occasionally plays lead, listen closely as he has one spot on this recording! The group has been around for over 20 years playing at private parties, weddings, funerals, hospitals, nursing homes, and folk festivals; in short anywhere someone will listen.
