Jennifer has been playing the Celtic harp since 1984, though the magical call of the harp had been beckoning her since first grade, when she heard it on a TV show. She also coaxes music out of woodwinds, lap dulcimer and hand percussion.  Jennifer performs with Valerie Blessley in the duo Celtic Muse, and they have played in many NW venues. Jennifer has three solo recordings, and three more with Valerie.  Jennifer teaches the harp, so if you have been drawn to the sound, she can get you started!  Jennifer also plays therapeutic harp music at the bedside of the elderly and the dying, and is available to play for your special occasion.

Adept with hammered dulcimer, piano, and vocals, Carl Thor plays with contra dance bands Cascade Crossing, Hands4, Orcas Ruckus and the Portland Megaband, Celtic and folk group Talisman, other groupings for folk dancing, and as a soloist. His compositions span a wide range of styles and traditions, from ragtime to techno, and from Scandinavia to the West Coast. Carl’s music is included on recent compilation CDs from Artichoke Music and the Portland Folk Music Society, and published in The Portland Collection books as well as his own dance music tune book. He is an organizer for the “Contra in the Couve!” dance series in Vancouver, and has been teaching music for two decades. Find out more at:  http://www.talismanmusic.com
