"“Insightful songs about the social climate that affect us; Bett’s engaging stories remind us of what’s really important.” Rootstime Magazine. 

When I was in college I studied voice performance. They wanted me to be an opera singer. All I wanted to do was play my guitar and piano and sing across the world. But, I met a man, fell in love, got married, raised a son (and many dogs, of which Ceilidhe was one), and ended up teaching music since 1978, helping many thousands of students find their voice in music. Then there was the Little Lake Hill House Concerts for 18 years. I promoted other artists for 140 shows. So now I am doing what Joseph Campbell tells us we must do, "Follow your bliss." I'm following my dream of being a performing songwriter. I've always loved singing for others and now, after recording eight CDs I am doing what I always wanted to do. Many songwriters write about their search for love. I write about the rest of life and what happens after we find love. Here are the current CDs recorded on "Ceilidhe's Music" label:
