Inis Mór, the largest of the Aran Islands on the West Coast of Ireland, and a place steeped in Celtic Heritage, was the inspirational place where Celtic Passage was written connecting us to the power of the Celtic world.
You are invited on this adventure, an odyssey through this other world. Celtic Passage calls us to remember, to return to the natural rhythms that connect us to a deeper and more joyful experience of life.
It is a musical journey of relationship – to self, to others and to the wisdom of our Celtic ancestors, exploring themes of life and death, the earth and nature, the savagery of war, the redemption of love and ultimately the splendor of creation.
It is the sound of Sunda that calls us home, to the seasons of our own heart.
With harp, fiddle, flute, bodhran and more, Celtic Passage is a musical journey to the land of the Spirit, a bold trek to the heart of this ancient tradition.
