"Behind the Green Bushes" is the debut CD from HeartSounds, the Philadelphia area duo of Janet Biely and Mary Kay Mann, two classically-trained musicians who discovered a mutual love for Celtic music and never looked back.
Mary Kay Mann is the flutist, whistler, and singer, whose lovely clear soprano and lively tune-playing make this recording sparkle.
Her great-grandfather arrived on the shores of Amerikay from County Mayo, Ireland, in 1905, bringing with him a longing for the green isle that he passed down through the generations.
Celtic harpist Janet Biely is the 1998 winner of the US National Scottish Harp Championship, whose intricate, romantic style captures your heart.
Janet''s ancestors were the Scots-Irish who sailed to Ireland and then to Pennsylvania for a new life.
Together, Mary Kay and Janet explore the music of Ireland, Scotland, and America, with original, lyrical arrangements of traditional songs and tunes.
This is not your Irish bar band music! It''s down to Paddy O''Lafferty''s for ye, if that''s what you''ll have, and bless you for it! No, this is Celtic music at its most beautiful - the sweeping, haunting melodies of 100-300 years past, sensitively expressed by two serious musicians who love the music and the history it represents.
"Behind the Green Bushes" will warm your heart.
