Musick has Charms to soothe a savage Breast, To soften Rocks, or bend a knotted Oak.
--William Congreve ("The Mourning Bride" 1697)
Celtinalia brings together two performers with many years of diverse musical experience. Jennifer Pratt-Walter, of the Celtic Muse duo, provides Celtic harp, recorder, tin whistle, percussion and vocals. Carl Thor, of Talisman, adds hammered dulcimer, keyboard, mandolin and vocals. Jennifer and Carl have known each other for years, but only recently began performing together outside of their church community. Together, they create music to lighten the spirit and feed the soul. Audiences are loving the transcendent quality of their music — and clamoring for a recording!
Available for performance at festivals, wineries, cafes, church services, retirement communities, weddings and other special occasions, Celtinalia weaves a varied and satisfying program of music ranging from the 14th century to the present day.
