"New Music for Celtic Harp" was recorded 1992 together with Ian Melrose and Peter Jack. Ian and I had been working together for years and the CD reflected very well the programme we were playing at the time. The album "Norland Wind" followed 1994, released on the Irish label Celtic Heartbeat. With Ian and Peter, Kerstin Blodig and Clannad's Noel and Pádraig Duggan all the members of the later 1996 Norland Wind line up feature on the album. Máire Breatnach who joined Norland Wind in 2000 is among the guest musicians along with Clannad keyboarder Ciarán Brennan and Kerstin's Touchwood partner Cristina Crawley. Both albums were produced and recorded with dedication, enthusiasm and invaluable creative input by German producer Mick Franke. His sudden unexpected death in April 2001 was a heavy blow to all of us. The recordings were remastered by Jörg Surrey and I am happy that these tunes are now back out there for you to listen to and enjoy.
