Once-Only Event … Two Harps & A Guitar in Concert!

Head on over the water for a fun and magical once-only evening featuring Deb Knodel & Jane Valencia (aka the Celtic harp duo Spookytree) and Steve Baughman, Celtic guitar. In a warm, intimate setting  we’ll play solos, duets, trios, and offer a story and a song or two.

Deb & I have been performing together for 26 years!  Listen to some of our music here.

We currently live in two different states, so it’s pretty rare that we perform together in concert. Still, we play together whenever we can. We practically have a telepathic connection when we play our harps (I kid you not!). That many years of harping together  and being practically like sisters will do it to ya!

Steve Baughman is an incredible Celtic guitarist. We met him many years ago at Valley Of The Moon Scottish Fiddle Camp, then in the Santa Cruz mountain redwoods. We played together in a 7-piece group called the Celtic Light Orchestra, and teamed up and performed together in various concerts. This concert is part of Steve’s Pacific Northwest tour. Deb is making a special trip here just so we can all perform together again!

Here is Steve playing a gorgeous version of a Breton tune, Dans Keff Avec. Imagine that the second guitarist is actually a harper — and that a second harper is also adding harmonies and playing too.

If you come to this concert, you won’t have to imagine the harps with the guitar playing this beautiful piece — you’ll hear it for yourself!

We have plenty of magic brewing for this concert, of which I will likely give you glimpses of  in upcoming blog posts. Trust me when I say of this event: Not to be missed! We plan to make it an absolutely wondrous way to start your week!
