credits and thanks

thank you…

Starfish Designs harp makers, for their trust and support, enthusiasm and commitment to furthering the development of the Scottish harp

to the musicians who give me inspiration, wonderful sounds to listen to

and who give their time and energy to make music with me

Alistair MacDonald, outstanding musician with the finest ears

Chris Stout, musician and bbq-er extraordinaire!

Marthe Valle, you made one of my all time favourite albums Ro/Uro (and had Chris and me play on it)

Kris Kesiak for my brilliant Harponium and Love in Secret photographs, and the many other photo sessions, outstanding ethos and design work. You capture the spirit of the music with your vision as if by magic, what a gift you are.

Louis DeCarlo, Donald MacLeaod, Lieve Boussauw and Lucy Kendra for their brilliant photography over the years
