SOUND SAMPLE FILES

updated 2/22/09


These are shortened versions (less than 60 seconds in most cases) to give you an idea of what our music sounds like.
The great majority of these cuts were recorded live in concert, hence the lack of a studio mix sound.
But we hope that the spirit of the music comes through!

COMPOSITIONS OF THE HARPERS (full length)

These are pieces that were composed in the 17th and 18th centuries by Irish harpers like
Turloch O Carolan and Rory Dall O Cathain. Because of their beauty, they have remained
in the repertoire of all Irish musicians to the present day. We have found them to be
excellent background music for wedding ceremonies!
