Dear friends,

We are excited to announce that our first CD, Celtic Chamber Music, is almost ready for release!  This crossover album combines the haunting, dynamic melodies of the Celtic tradition with the grace and lyricism of Classical chamber music.  Recorded live at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Boston, the pieces on this album are a conversation between violin and piano through the rich landscape of the Celtic spirit.

Now, here’s where YOU come in:  The recording/editing process is finished, as is the cover design, but there’s one last step to go before we can unleash our CD on the world.  The manufacturing of CDs and their cases (a.ka., “replication”) costs money… more money than we can easily afford to put down on our very first album venture.  If you would like to be a part of making Celtic Chamber Music a reality, please consider donating whatever amount you feel comfortable giving.  Big or small, your contributions mean a great deal to us, because it means our music has touched you in some way.

And don’t forget, there’s something in it for you! (besides that warm and fuzzy feeling you get when you donate to a good cause)  Be they free downloadable tracks, an autographed copy of the CD, an exclusive downloadable single not featured on the album, a painting or composition created just for you, or a concert in your own home, we have all sorts ways to express our gratitude for different levels of donation.

Thank you for taking the time to check out our project.  We can’t wait to share Celtic Chamber Music with listeners everywhere, but we can only do that with your help!


With warmest wishes,

Samantha & Tim
