A musician whose technical skill and stylistic expertise are second to none” Bluegrass Unlimited
Hailed as a “Celtic guitar god” by Baltimore City Paper, Indie Award winner Robin Bullock interprets the ancient music of the Celtic lands and their vigorous Appalachian descendants on acoustic guitar, cittern and mandolin. A warm, friendly performer, he effortlessly creates a magical world for the audience with his instrumental wizardry. On The Enchanted Woods, his sixth solo recording, Robin brings his stripped-down acoustic ensemble arrangements to the timeless melodies of the Celtic lands and Appalachia, together with some of his most inspired original compositions to create a land of enchantment indeed.
Donna Long grew up in California, and learned piano from her father, Byron Long, a jazz/classical pianist. But it was not until she moved to the Baltimore/Washington area and heard fiddler, Brendan Mulvihill playing Irish music that she was inspired to learn the fiddle and gain a solid foundation in the traditional style. She began to accompany him on the piano and came to be considered one of the finest pianists playing Irish music. Among her many honors, she was asked by the Smithsonian Institution in 2000 to represent Irish Music in the series Piano Traditions - celebrating 300 years of the piano.
A former member of the internationally acclaimed Irish group Cherish the Ladies, she has recorded five CDs with them. Her first solo CD, Handprints, (released in 2003) includes performances by some of the foremost traditional musicians from both sides of the Atlantic
