Product Description

Celtique Air  is lead by Jane Ogilvie and Helen Morag McKinnon. They perform Celtic traditional tunes with grace and flair to spare. “Call of the Glens” features a mix of originals and instrumental sets and ballads.

The following is taken from their bio..

Helen and Jane first joined forces as members of a larger Celtic folk group – Oran. “When Jane took up the harp and started being part of my Gaelic songs, I thought I had died and gone to heaven”. That was 21 years ago and while they both continued to teach school and raise families they also found themselves accepting invitations to give recitals, present workshops and collaborate with other musians to create the tapestry that is the New Brunswick Celtic folk music scene. Eventually the invitations came from neighbouring provinces as well as the state of Maine. In 1996 they performed at the International Folk Harp Festival in Olympia, Washington.
Now that both are retired from their day jobs and their children have flown the proverbial coop, Celtique Air has new creative freedom. Helen, who has been teaching Gaelic language for many years, is developing a Gaelic course recorded on CD, including songs which reinforce pronunciation and cultural understanding. Her latest workshops have been in New Brunswick and Michigan.
