Album Notes
As a solo performer, I play at weddings, celebrations, receptions, and the like, offering a wide variety of musical entertainment that ranges from ragtime to classical to Celtic. This album includes music from this part of my repertoire. The mood of the album is bracketed by Jay Unger's hauntingly beautiful Ashokan Farewell and Charles Johnson's well-known rag, "Dill Pickles" (the first ragtime tune to sell over a million copies of sheet music). The O'Carolan counterpoints (arranged by J. Michael Pope) are unique, complex arrangements of these timeless melodies. The classical world is represented by Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring (the first tune I ever played for my husband) and a lovely arrangement of a Haydn serenade that I learned when I played in a chime choir. Rounding out the album are my own arrangements of a couple of fiddle tunes.
