Celtic Muse serendipitously came into being at a Renaissance theme wedding in 1995. Since that time, Jennifer and Valerie have carried their love of harp and traditional music out into the world, like small ripplets ever broadening to span a limitless pond. Wind and Wood is their first collaborative recording. Celtic Muse has become a Northwest favorite, appearing in popular venues ranging from The Portland Christmas Revels to winning the 1999 Northwest Regional Scottish Harp Competition.
Valerie Klemetti Blessley''s love of playing music began with learning the flute as a child. She currently plays harp, flute, recorder, pennywhistle, and Finnish kantele with Celtic Muse. She also performs in the Portland, OR area with the Finnish kantele ensemble Livakat, and the trio Soittorasia (Music Box). Look for her solo harp and kantele CD, Northern Light on CDBaby as well as Celtic Muse''s winter theme recording, Merry & Bright. Valerie has also published a book of harp music entitled, A Harper''s Croft, available at https://www.tradebit.com
Jennifer Pratt-Walter communicates her deep love of her instrument and music with her hands, searching to define and transcend human experience. She has played harp for over fifteen years, and is an avid music arranger.
