The Celtic people have always believed that there are two worlds. There is the world that we live in. And there is “The Otherworld.” This Land of Faery is filled with wonder and delight but also darkness and peril. The acclaimed ensemble, Legends of the Celtic Harp, opened the door into this mystical world with music played on Celtic harps, Irish bouzouki, mandolin, cittern, and Swedish Nyckelharpa and told the tales of that legendary land… from which no one returns unchanged.

Patrick Ball is an American master of the Irish harp and a captivating spoken word artist. He has recorded nine instrumental and three spoken word albums which have sold well over a half million copies internationally, winning national awards in both the music and spoken word categories.

Lisa Lynne is a multi-instrumentalist and performer who has gained worldwide recognition for her original music featuring her Celtic Harp. She is widely acclaimed for composing memorable and heartwarming melodies on the Windham Hill/Sony music labels that have repeatedly placed in the Top 10 & Top 20 on the Billboard New age music charts.

Aryeh Frankfurter is also a renowned Celtic harper and world traveling multi-instrumentalist who went from virtuosic progressive rock violin to intricate Swedish folk and Celtic Music.
