Album Notes
Thomas “Doc” Grauzer is a self-taught harper and storyteller of the Irish tradition, including in his repertoire a variety of stately airs, lively dance tunes, and amusing anecdotes about the tunes, and their history. There are elements of both the elegant harping tradition and the much more recent tradition of the pub session in his performance. He is a versatile performer, having played at a wide variety of Celtic and Renaissance Festivals, private parties and weddings, as well as numerous pubs and restaurants. Since 1997, he has had a continuing gig at Mother's Cafe and Garden in Austin, Texas, where he may be heard on Thursday and Friday evenings, and for Saturday brunch.

Peaceful Enough to Soothe Even the Most Savage of Beasts
The harp music on this CD is peaceful enough to soothe even the most savage of beasts. This is truly a relaxing compilation of songs, and expertly played. While bad harp music can make you think along the lines of bad Christmas music, good harp music can lift your mood and settle your troubles down. Grauzer does just that with his gentle, musical touch.

Doc Grauzer - Infernal Harp RacketHistorically, the harp has been associated most often with the aristocracy, but its otherworldly sound has given it a wide appeal over the years. Unlike the bagpipes, which can be an acquired taste for some, the harp has many admirers. Grauzer's CD is the perfect music to set the stage for unwinding from a difficult day or for a romantic candlelit dinner for two. The dreamy playing will transport you.

Good musicians can make playing an instrument seem and sound easy, and that is the case with this CD. With the music of the harp solo, with nothing else to distract one's ear, you wouldn't miss it if the musicianship was off. Luckily, this is not ever a concern on this effort, and Grauzer plays effortlessly throughout the songs, a testament to his skill. If you like the harp, don't miss this CD.
