The Celtic Album has many tunes familiar to Americans as well as some Celtic-flavored Henson-Conant originals and tunes she heard for the first time in her travels to Celtic lands. The all-instrumental album is varied inn arrangements blend traditional Celtic tunes with blues and, at times, startling harmonies with an energy that is truly Deborah Henson-Conant.

Fantastic Celtic inpired harpistry mixed with the blues!

"I am always looking for new and unusual music (and musicians). Deborah Henson-Conant nicely fits the bill! She plays the harp. But, she plays it like nobody else! She plays improvisational jazz and the blues. And she puts on a most incredible show! See her in concert if you ever get the opportunity! Then, pick up this CD!In 1998, Deborah was featured on the PBS special, "Celtic Harpestry," filmed at Lismore Castle in Ireland by the production company that created "Riverdance." She was so enthused that she went into the studio and recorded an entire album inspired by her Celtic adventures, her 12th CD, "The Celtic Album"."
The hippest of harps

"I agree wholeheartedly with 2 other reviewers. In fact, they helped me decide to buy this album. It's a wonderful listen. DCH combines traditions, celtic and american, with a forward looking touch of her own. I love the improvisational commentary on some of the oldest celtic tunes. On this disk, she plays solo harp, multiple harps and on couple of instances her ensemble includes flute and voices. Her sporadic use of synthesizer is ever so subtle.
Let me let you on a secret. My order via this site was getting delayed, so I found out that you could order Deborah's music directly from her. Just visit her website, "hipharp", and for $15 plus shipping you can even have your CD signed. Enjoy!"
