ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Brocelïande plays Celtic music from the British Isles and the Medieval and Renaissance music of the European courts, castles, and countrysides. Featuring stellar vocal and instrumental harmonies, their entrancing sound is built on the interweaving of up to 4-part vocals with the lyrical music of the Celtic harp, octave mandolin, cello, guitar, flutes, whistles, percussion, harmonica, and melodeon.
Their repertoire includes original arrangements of traditional and Early music and ranges in feel from driving, danceable Celtic beats to haunting ballads to 4-part a capella madrigals. Their lyrics, including some in Medieval French and Portuguese, speak of love and longing, quests and revels, magic and transformation, in an evocative style in the same vein as Loreena McKennitt, Clannad, and Alan Stivell.
Recent performing highlights include the Freight & Salvage, the Sausalito Art Festival, the CalTech Folk Series, and appearances on Sedge Thomson's "West Coast Live" show. Broceliande tours throughout the West Coast and has been performing since 1999.

Broceliande is:
MARGARET DAVIS - vocals, flute, Celtic harp, recorders
KARL FRANZEN - guitar, octave mandolin, vocals, whistle, harmonica, melodeon, hand-drum
KRISTOPH KLOVER - vocals, 12-string and 6-string guitar, octave mandolin, oboe
KRIS YENNEY - cello, viol, percussion, vocals
