CD Reviews

This is my favorite of all of Joemy Wilson's works.

"I first heard Joemy Wilson play O'Carolan's music in 1987 at Christmas in July in Oceanside, CA. I had never heard of O'Carolan and was unfamiliar with the hammered dulcimer, but the bright music of this recording struck a chord with me. I bought my first Joemy Wilson tape that day and I was hooked. I went back the next year and bought 2 more, and the next year 3 more. I have since heard other artists perform O'Carolan's works, but no one has come close to Joemy. Of all her recordings, this is still my favorite. I am glad to see amazon.com carries her work."
This is mood-altering music

"I have owned this album for more than a decade, and it remains one of my favorites. I find that listening to it helps me clear my mind and improve my mood - there is a joy in the melodies that is infectious. This is very engaging music, but be warned, it can be habit-forming."
This cd is going to help you celebrate life!

"I've had this tape in my collection for years, I played it so often, it broke, then I replaced it with the cd.When I first bought it, I had moved from a sunny climate to a dreary rainy and foggy place, this music helped me through the sad times with it's uplifting, lilting sounds. The melody laughs out loud, and you can't help but to let your soul smile."
