Album Notes
Blue Moon Rising, the fourth and latest album from Acoustic Ocean, offers a dynamic and engaging collection of original acoustic instrumental music that inspires reflection and touches the heart.

Eleven compositions, on the themes of Remembrance, Gratitude and Renewal, feature Bette Phelan on acoustic guitar and bowed dulcimer and Kay Aldrich on cello.

Additional instruments, played by Bette - fretless bass, electric guitar, Ebow, Celtic whistle, mountain dulcimer, mandolin, banjo, wordless vocals, piano, and more - combine to create a rich palette of sound.

The compositions on Blue Moon Rising are engaging, evocative, poignant, uplifting, and relaxing. The intricate interplay of instruments captures the uniqueness and synergy of the original music of Acoustic Ocean.

Key influences in this new music, New Age, Folk, and Celtic, continue the recognizable sound of earlier Acoustic Ocean albums.
Blue Moon Rising is the first Acoustic Ocean release since the death of group member and harpist, Peggy Morgan, in 2016. One composition, “Love is a Force Field,” features Peggy Morgan on harp and vocals, and was recorded before her passing.

Bette Phelan composed the music for Blue Moon Rising during musical meditations over a two-year period.

The album is dedicated to the memory of Peggy Morgan, Bette’s music partner of 40 years, and to Nancy Phelan, her mother.

Bette’s journey from personal loss and grief to gratitude and renewal is eloquently expressed in this new music.

A Fabulous New Release from Acoustic Ocean
Peggy Morgan and Bette Phelan created something unique with Acoustic Ocean’s blend of New Age, Celtic and Hawaiian musical influences. In writing and producing “Blue Moon Rising,” following Peggy’s death in 2016, Bette has pulled off something powerful.

This is Acoustic Ocean music, with new sounds and influences. It’s soothing, gentle music you can relax to. While you’re relaxing, “Blue Moon Rising” takes you on a musical journey that leaves you feeling upbeat and renewed by the time the last track finishes.

I love this new Acoustic Ocean CD. Peggy may no longer be here on earth, but her spirit is alive in “Blue Moon Rising.” I’d say Acoustic Ocean is still making waves!
