Heather Dale cheerfully disregards the stereotypical limits for both folk singer-songwriters and Celtic balladeers. Tapping into the continuing evolution of Celtic peoples worldwide, this Canadian recording artist offers a new type of Celtic music for the 21st century: a playful, passionate blend of tradition and innovation. "Her music is powerful stuff, reminiscent of Loreena McKennitt and Sarah McLachlan but with a depth and resonance rooted in its mythic sources." (Vancouver Sun)
With her CD 'The Trial of Lancelot', Heather has crafted a journey into the King Arthur story that draws these legends forward into the present day. Some songs take the form of traditional ballads, while others explore the emotions of Sir Lancelot, Queen Guinevere and King Arthur from a first-person perspective. The album features Heather's evocative lyrics and melodies, supported by such diverse instruments as cello, tin whistle, electric guitar, piano and didgeridoo. With lush orchestration and Celtic-inspired vocals, this Modern Celtic recording bridges the gap between the traditional and the new.
