MacPhail Free Family Music Series: Willow Brae
Willow Brae is Irish and Scottish music on harp and wind instruments featuring:
Laura MacKenzie and Andrea Stern first worked together in the Spring of 2002, on a commercial recording project produced by MacKenzie. They discovered a deep, shared respect and passion for Irish and Scottish music. The somewhat unusual combination of Laura’s wooden flutes, whistles, pipes, concertina and voice with Andrea’s Celtic harp created a wondrous spectrum of sound, and it was soon realized that their musical sensibilities made for a strong collaboration. Thus was born the duo Willow Brae, dedicated to the performance of both traditional and modern Irish and Scottish music.
