Album Notes
This Music is inspired by the life of Turlough O Carolan, the blind Irish harpist whose glorious approach to melody has visited us through the ages. Filling the well of the subconscious Celtic memory that exists in us all with his pure vision of musicality and connecting us with another side of our humanity.

CELTIC INSPIRATION draws on the ancient traditions of Celtic Music to evoke the spirit of the natural world. Bringing the peaceful tranquility of the Lochs and Highlands into your living room to enable you to connect with the wonderful energy of the Celtic traditions.

All music written arranged performed recorded and produced by Andrew Brel and Hugh Burns in Riverbank Studio, Hampton Court during 2007.

On this recording Hugh is playing his Maldanado guitar for the principal melodies.
Other instrumentation that appears on this album: Kohno, Larrivee nylon strung, Taylor PS555 12 string, Gibson J300 and a Hathaway mandolin.

Microphone recording of acoustic guitars using a vintage AKG valve mic.
Tracks all completed on a beefed up Mac running Logic Pro with numerous plug ins.

Zoe Zak, 17, appears on two tracks.
With special thanks to Alan Tarney for his typically fabulous vocal on ‘Breathe’.

Celtic Inspiration
Missed my Chichester based Iyenga class last night following a day in Brighton blah
blah... hellish gridlock on the A27 coming home ... blah blah.. [how do those poor
commuters do it? I\'d take poison if I had to suffer that drive every day] anyway...
Feeling really antsy having spent waaaaay too much time confined in a motor vehicle, and riddled with guilt [even though it was my first trip in a week that wasn’t made on foot] that I had burned gallons of diesel - better on CO2 emissions than petrol but worse on NOx - in near stationary traffic, and thereby helped, yet again, to line the bulging pockets of Big Oil whilst simultaneously destroying another patch of this Gaian paradise… I needed my yoga fix more than ever. Solution… decided to unfurl my hemp and natural latex mat at home. Slipped into the CK PJs [hmm, laidback cool and comfy cosy, but not recycled flannel; should I have returned the gift?] and indulged in some self-practice [I said self-practice!] and hey... \'Celtic Inspiration\' was right there by the CD thingy in the workspace/living room [because I also write to it; that and Tangerine Dream and an outfit called Lightwave] so I popped it right on the turntable doobery, and \'upward-dogged\' and \'downward-dogged\' to that... well... hello... it was just the bee’s knees, the cat’s whiskers, and the dog’s boll**ks all rolled into one vibe wise wise! So much so in fact that I\'m taking the CD in to the class next week and insisting - in a caring-sharing-tree-hugging-knitting-my-own-museli-kind-of-way of course - that it\'s the perfect soundtrack to the next episode of our stretchy-bendy-staying-with-the-breath-enlightenment. Celtic Inspiration indeed!
