ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Heather Alexander is a fiery, redheaded Faerie Tale Minstrel who is known for singing the praises of the fae folk. She composes and performs original and traditional Celtic music on fiddle, guitar, bodhran and any other instrument that the sidhe may present to her.

When not on tour, she makes her home in the countryside west of Portland, Oregon, with a menagerie of magical creatures including Kore the House Elf. More often, however, Heather is found performing solo up and down the West Coast or abroad, concentrating on venues between Portland and Seattle, or with her Celtic Folk and Mythic World Rock band, Uffington Horse. Whether solo or with the band, her spellbinding music is received with enthusiasm by audiences of all ages.

Heather has published eight albums on her own label, Sea Fire Productions, including two live albums, four studio works, a “blooper” album and an Uffington Horse band album, “Enchantment.”

Her music with book tie-ins like “Insh’Allah: the Music of Lion’s Blood,” “Songsmith” and “Shadow Stalker” have assured her popularity at SciFi conventions, while her appearances at pubs, coffee houses, Folk Music Festivals and Highland Games have made her music available to the public at large. Her most recent release is a book tie-in with Irene Radford’s series, “Merlin’s Descendants,” to debut in April 2006, and a second album of sea shanties, “Arms of the Sea,” is due out in mid-summer 2006.

She can be found on the Web at www.heatherlands.com.

Midsummer
An exquisite album! Truly enjoyable to listen to in the car, while reading, or just relaxing. My personal favourites were "March of Cambreadth" and "Flesh Against the Thorn".

Midsummer Album
I 'discovered' Heather Alexander through the glowing endorsements in some of S. M. Stirlings books. Her songs are really as good as he says! A friend also downloaded the album, and was - perhaps a trifle unwise- in playing 'The March of Cambreadth' when his two youngsters (3 and 4) could hear. Now his house sometime resounds with such childish phrases as 'Fight 'til you're no longer sane' and 'How many of them can we make die'.....

March of Cambreadth
I first heard March of Cambreadth on Marc Gunn's "Irish and Celtic Music Podcast" the other week and fell in love with it! It makes the blood boil. I'm getting a couple other of Heather's pieces and if they are just as good I will be buying the whole freaking lot of them!

I really love all the cuts on this CD. As an old retired warrior of the 82d Airborne Division, I especially loved cut 11. March of Cambreadth. Makes one want to take up arms to defend the home land and the women and children once again. Blessing and many thanks for sahring your GOd given talents with us. Rev Hawk
