ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
BECCON is a four-member ensemble performing Celtic, American traditional and original music in the Portland, Oregon area. The group has been together since 1998.We are:

Karen Bjorklund - Keyboard, guitar, whistles, percussion, banjo, mandolin and dulcimer.

Karen has been playing, singing and creating music since she was 7 years old. She likes to explore new instruments or think up new ways to use old instruments; don't be surprised if she switches instruments during a tune. Karen says her interest in Celtic music isn't just because she is descended from a clan appointed hereditary clan pipers - it's because she loves the tunes.

Sally Campbell
Violin

Sally started with the violin at an early age, drifted away when she built a new career and family, and came back to her instrument when her twin boys showed an interest in music. She likes a variety of musical styles, including classical and Celtic, particularly Scottish Celtic (she is a Campbell, after all).

Steve Carr
Steel-string guitar and mandolin

Steve has been playing stringed instruments since he was 12 years old and practically grew up in McCabe's Guitar Shop in Santa Monica, California. He has always loved traditional music, particularly the Scots-Irish music of the Appalachian region. Steve also plays the mandolin in our band.

Craig Nickles
Electric bass

Craig has played a variety of instruments over the years, but settled in with the bass to back up church music (and some of that music is really rockin'!). Besides playing instrumentals, Craig loves to sing. On very special occasions we let him do vocals even though we are primarily an instrumental group!
