With Shelter in Place, three harp friends — Deb Knodel, Verlene Schermer, Claudia Slayman — and myself came together virtually to put together four videos. The concept: we each choose and start and tune, record our part, then pass the video to one another. Verlene engaged in tech-wizardry to weave and mix these videos — synchronizing the videos, balancing the audios, and working magic to produce them.
The videos were great fun to put together, and we’ll be doing more. In the meantime, please welcome us into your living room! Here’s the music we play:
A note on our group and group name: Spooky Redtail Moon combines three group names that four musicians worked under either currently or in the past. Spookytree is Deb Knodel and Jane Valencia, Redtail & Gingko is Claudia Slayman and Deb Knodel, and To the Moon is Verlene Schermer, Deb Knodel and Claudia Slayman. We met through our love of the Celtic harp, and have been friends for over 25 years, playing music together whenever we are together at harp retreats, Scottish Games, and other events.
