Weaving masterful dreamscapes centered around angelic vocals and expertise on the four and a half octave, hundred stringed hammer dulcimer, Kate Price creates contemporary international folk fusion of classical, jazz and ethnic music using instruments from many cultures. The Isle of Dreaming, Price's beautifully realized follow-up to her 1997 OMTOWN debut, Deep Heart's Core, is an emotional, multi-faceted journey from darkness to light featuring cello, classical guitar, Nyckleharpa, sitar, electric sitar, tabla, Nigerian udu, oboe and English horn.

"I wonder if you've reached this quiet page the way I first did: by floating down the tributaries and backwaters of the endless amazon, wandering from list to list and reference to reference, seduced by ecstatic cries from strangers, but wary of them also - for if you believed but a fraction of their claims, you would be bankrupt by tomorrow. Perhaps by now you are on unfamiliar waters, many miles away from the landmark album with which you started your chase for something beautiful. If so, haul your canoe up the riverbank and rest your weary ears, for you might just have found it. First read the reviews, because they happen to be true. All they omit to mention is the outstanding quality of the recording itself, making this even more of a joy if you have a good system. Now click the grungy lo-fi clips of Ms Price playing her hammered dulcimer. If you howl in pain and rip your headphones off - as I do myself at most of these picnics by the waterside - then bon voyage and better luck with the next siren who sees your boat and lures you in. But if the flavour of the music interests and intrigues (and that is the most one can fairly expect from these little droplets of sound) I do hope it leads to your buying this wonderful and special piece of work."
An incredible album

"I stumbled across Kate Price while looking for Loreena McKennitt CDs here on Amazon, and I've never been more grateful for the site's recommendations.
The Isle of Dreaming is a hauntingly lovely album, incorporating many different styles of music into a beautiful tapestry of sound. Price's music reminds me of Loreena McKennitt's in that she seamlessly blends Celtic sounds with Middle Eastern styles and exotic instruments. Price's hammer dulcimer is a treat to listen to; not many artists take advantage of its unique sound.
If you are a fan of Loreena McKennitt (or even if you're not), I would definitely recommend Kate Price, particularly The Isle of Dreaming."

"I am a fan of celtic music and of the many albums i have herd this is the most colorful. In the first track, The isle of dreaming, she, Kate Price, displays her butiful voice talent. In Analusia the instruments are magicaly played. In voices of my people, it is a blissful combination of both. The pheonix is my favorite of all. Kate counts eight is a wonderful tune. Inspireing what I would call sea of silence. Mystic warrior is a mystical tune that is energetic. I could compare Planxty Almblade-cruse. Beloved is a loveable vocal perfection. I recomend you buy, rent or borrow this CD from a friend."
