Chasing the breezeChasing the breeze Ref: A0159
Helen Davies
There is a legend from the Western Isles of Scotland that tells of a harper who, on his travels, would sail into the creeks of the Isles, always at twilight. He would spend the evening at the headland house, where the "makers and hearers" of music would gather. At midnight he would pass the blessing around and put out to sea again, forever "tune-seeking and tune- making" ... These are tunes that I have gathered on my travels - from countries I have lived in or visited - from many of the wonderful musicians I have had the privilege of meeting along the way.
