Ceilidhe's Music

Ceilidhe's Music Logo
Ceilidhe was my dog, a smooth-coated red border collie who for nearly 18 years was by my side in the music sunroom as I wrote songs, sang and played music with my students. Actually, Ceilidhe was infatuated by the reflection of guitar tuners as the sun reflected upon them and caused light to dance around the studio, but she must have enjoyed the music too. Since she was always with me and such a big part of my music, I named the label after her. Many songs are written about the history of North Carolina and of personal experiences. I love telling stories and some of the CDs include songs which are stories put to music. 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:

An Indigogo Campaign was created to help with radio promotion, but as the title song, “At the End of the Day” is about understanding people with great needs, 65% of contributions to the campaign  went to help vicitms of recent hurricanes and our local Inter-Faith Food Shuttle. More than $3000 will help those in dire need of supplies and food. More about the CD can be found here.

NEW NEWS!!!! I am so excited about my new album, "At the End of the Day". Produced by Chris Rosser at Hollow Reed Studio in Asheville and working with wonderful musicians has made my music shine. Chris plays piano, guitar on a few numbers, dotar, and several other instruments as well as harmony. Members of Free Planet Radio are also joining in, Eliot Wadopian (bass)and Guerguerian (percussion) as well as Josh Goforth on fiddle. A CD release concert was given October 14th, and 1/2 of the door went to vicitims of recent hurricanes as well as 65% of my Indigogo Campaign. I was able to donate $3000 to people who were left in need due to those storms as well as to the local Inter-Faith Food Shuttle. All CDs are available at:
What's new? I've been working with Kari Estrin who is promoting "At the End of the Day" to national and international radio. We are getting some good airplay and I am thankful to all DJs who are playing my songs.
