About the Artist

Here's a companion album to Northern Lights, one of Gourd's first and most perennially popular titles. Harris Moore and Steve Coulter's hammered dulcimer/harp arrangements draw freely from an enticing array of traditions and influences: the rich Celtic heritage of O'Carolan and the ancient bards, the Baroque delights of J.S. Bach and Henry Purcell, and the glory of American folk and gospel music - along with beguiling new original compositions. Featuring Scarborough Fair, Midnight on the Water, Two Sisters, Day of Grace, Eleanor Plunkett, Sheep Under the Snow, Hewlett, Princess Royal, and more; with guest artists Shelley and Barry Phillips, William Coulter and others.

I've played my copy of this tape so often that I need a new one. Northern Lights delivers a non-stop banquet of instrumental music that never fails to soothe and rejuvenate. Their tunes are drawn primarily from ancient and traditional Celtic airs, that take on delightful new meaning in their highly talented hands, as well as some fine original work. Their first offering, 'Northern Lights' is also well-worth a listen. One of my very favorite listening pieces from a group with a well-deserved loyal following.

Our first introduction to Steve Coulter and Harris Moore's music came in August as we stopped the car at the top of the Conor Mountain Pass in Dingle Ireland. As we stepped out of the auto to take in the awesome view, beautiful harp music came wafting across the breeze. On the mountain-side in the most unlikely, yet most perfect, of places was Steve Coulter playing the harp. It was a truly magical moment. I've since shared with CD with everyone I know... especially cut #6, the Conor Pass.

I fisrt purchased this CD about two years ago in Conner Pass in the Dingle Peninsula of Ireland. The music is absolutely beautiful. It has such an innocent quality that you can not help but fall in love with it. Completely instrumental, it soothes your heart just by hearing the first notes. If you buy the CD, share it and sends its beauty everywhere. I beleive that the best songs would be #1, Scarborough Fair because of its ability to tell a story through music and #5, Sheep Under the Snow for its harmony and wonderful music. Both are beautifully done and have such smooth rhthym. Some songs are traditional and others original but all will claim your loyalty. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Please note that there are many groups out there that go by the name "Northern Lights"

My review is for the work by the harp/hammered dulcimer duo of Steve Coulter and Harris Moore (and guests).

I came upon this album by accident - I was trying to buy Northern Lights used, and they sent me that CD case with the "Vanishing Borders" disc inside. Didn't know this second delightful disc existed, so it was a happy accident indeed.

To me, all of their work is like the soundtrack to a blissful dream. You can immerse yourself with a close listen on headphones, or let it play gently in the background.

Bottom line, I have been trying to locate every album they produced (sadly, they may have disbanded at this point).

***You can get their works as MP3 downloads, but the sample for "Busker's Dream" on the first album sounds glitchy - I suggest trying to hunt down the CDs first, as I did.***
