Album Notes
Heather Dale cheerfully disregards the stereotypical limits for both folk singer-songwriters and Celtic balladeers. Tapping into the continuing evolution of Celtic peoples worldwide, this Canadian recording artist offers a new type of Celtic music for the 21st century: a playful, passionate blend of tradition and innovation. "Her music is powerful stuff, reminiscent of Loreena McKennitt and Sarah McLachlan but with a depth and resonance rooted in its mythic sources." (Vancouver Sun)

Heather fuses traditional stories with a healthy mix of Celtic folk, blues, jazz and world music influences. Particularly known for her interpretations of ancient legends, she excels at finding modern themes within old and often overlooked material. On her CD "May Queen" Heather explores the British King Arthur legends, offering sensitive and powerful first-person portrayals of Sir Lancelot, Queen Guinevere, King Arthur, Merlin and Morgan Le Fay.

Her songs encompass wild folk-rock fairytales, pastoral instrumentals, scathing historical commentary and simple tunes about facing life's transitions. They're songs about honesty and loss, humour and bravery -- with inspiration drawn from the diverse cultures that house the modern Celtic diaspora. "Heather's songs express something that honors tradition, but in keeping with the best of traditions they break new ground." (WDVR FM, New Jersey)

Heather Dale tours full-time (100+ concerts per year) across North America and Europe. Recordings by Heather Dale include: The Gabriel Hounds (2008), The Hidden Path: Live & Rarities (2006), The Road to Santiago (2005), May Queen (2003), This Endris Night (2002), Call The Names (2001), and The Trial of Lancelot (2000).

Touching and inspiring
The melodies, the lyrics and Heathers wonderful voice make this cd worthy of five stars. Just beautiful! It is all I can think of to say.

I'm entranced!
I have now purchased this CD and the Trials of Lancelot twice as I need a copy every where I go. I have also purchased the music online for my computer! A little overboard? No! Heather Dale brings the Arthurian Legends to Life and Light once again!!!!
