ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Skye Boat /George & Anwyn Leverett

Skye Boat has an "ocean feel" the title track is the old Scottish Sky Boat Song, with the gentle sound of the surf and the quaintness of an Irish seaport village, this CD is the most traditional of the set. This cd features the Celtic harp, guitar, penny whistle, zither, hurdy gurdy, bowed psaltry. Mellow Irish instrumental with three soft vocals. The featured vocal is an original by George & Anwyn Leverett called Whistle Up the Wind. It tells of the enticing call of a fairy to a weary farmer to come to the forest and "refresh" himself on Beltane eve.

George & Anwyn Leverett Bio
Ancient, Traditional & Contemporary Celtic Music
2007 marks the 15th anniversary of the acclaimed Celtic music duo, George & Anwyn Leverett. They have
played such diverse venues as Celtic and Blue Grass festivals, Nevada casinos, pubs, fairs, school assemblies and sold-out concerts. They performed the "Green Show" of the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival for seven years, before moving to Oregon.
They have a passion for Irish and Scottish music that proclaims itself with each performance. Ancient,
traditional and contemporary Celtic music comes to life with their wide variety of old world instruments. Anwyn and
George play Irish fiddle, cittern, guitar, mandolin, hurdy-gurdy, zither, hammer dulcimer, bowed psaltery, penny
whistle & recorder but George's main instrument is the beautiful self-made 36 string "Lady Harp" They blend a
kaleidoscope of sounds and textures that makes no two songs sound the same.
George hand-built all the old-world instruments used on their recordings for the best possible tone and
authenticity. The combination of these rare, ancient instruments creates a beautiful ethereal sound that is no longer available in modern music.
Their CDs, Skye Boat, Songs from Shadow Wood, Altar Wind and Christmas Around the Hearth have sold over
50,000 copies. Relaxation and gentle peace are the keywords to describe this collection of CDs. Songs from Shadow Wood has a "forest feel", Altar Wind is "open and airy and reflective". Their new release, Hearth Light is a cheery collection of jigs & reels, with 3 light vocals, as warm and lazy as a walk down an Irish country lane and bright as a dancing candle flame.

George & Anwyn Leverett's music is played on Celtic music radio shows across the US, Canada, Australia,
Ireland, Russia and Brazil. For more information visit their web site at aroundthehearth.com For information on hand made old world instruments by George Leverett go to altarwind.com
