It’s Summer! With Show 52, “Sun in Summer,” we enjoy a Solstice poem, folklore and traditional uses of the herb of the sun, St. John’s Wort, plenty of harp music, plus traditional and contemporary voices and music from Ireland and Scotland, and more.
Enjoy the harp playing of Margot Krimmel, Anne Roos, Mike Nielson, Máire Ní Chathasaigh, Rachel Newton, and Sue Richards.
Our second hour is an encore airing of Show 7, “Place” — in particular, how the nature of the land and summer speak through our hearts, and we in turn give voice and expression to our experience of the land. In this show we also celebrate Father’s Day (yes, several weeks past!) with a few songs honoring dads.
In Show 7, enjoy harp in the playing of Patrick Ball, Verlene Schermer and Kyle Wohlmut, Sharlene Wallace and Kim Robertson, and Siobhán Armstrong.
