Album Notes
Internationally recognized folk guitarist Christopher Dean is not just a gifted exponent of Celtic music. In the Celtic tradition, he is also a bard. He tells engaging, humorous stories, and weaves Celtic lore with his music - haunting airs that take you far away to a land of the imagination - laments that evoke past glory - and the familiar trinity of lively jigs, reels, and strathspeys.

"...many guitarists seem to concentrate on playing the instrument rather than the music. The music of Dean is exactly the opposite of this position. Very rarely have we heard a more sensitive and expressive guitarist who communicates through his Taylor guitar."
- Alfredo De Pietra, Keltika Magazine, Milan, Italy

"... I frequently play the CD "Highland Heritage" which features the sensitive, tranquil solo acoustic guitar playing of Christopher Dean. Now, Chris (who has Scottish roots but lives in Southern California) has produced another CD "The Gael" with a mixture of Scottish and Irish traditional and contemporary music, performed instrumentally on acoustic guitar. I've bought a copy and it is now on my 'most often played' list"
- Alan Scott Rampant Scotland, Glasgow, Scotland

"...Canadian author Rob Lockhart describes Dean's music beautifully. "It is wholly remarkable that Christopher Dean's solo fingerstyle guitar can evoke the very soul of Celtic spirit and emotion. His Irish and Scottish ancestry infuses the notes with mystery, and nostalgia, and pride. The notes are not just played, they are expressed lovingly, as if by a poetic bard who speaks to your very soul...."

"With two Celtic albums already recorded, Dean remains loyal to the Celtic sounds of his musical heritage. His CD's, "Highland Heritage" and "The Gael" were received with rave reviews. Dean also adds a humorous storytelling aspect to the music during his live shows. ...be forewarned: his beautiful ballads may just steel your heart!"
- San Diego Troubadour
