Celtic & British Isles
Festival's opening performance:
Caffe Mediterraneum, Noon - 1:30 pm
Margaret Davis & Kristoph Klover perform original arrangements of Celtic music from the British Isles and the Medieval and Renaissance melodies of the European courts and countrysides. Their entrancing sound features tight harmonies and is built on the interweaving of soaring vocals with Celtic harp, octave mandolin, 6 & 12 string guitars, flute, recorders, and tin whistle.
Margaret & Kristoph have delighted audiences since 1993 -- sharing the magic of other times and places with fans of traditional music the world over. Through their travels and studies, Margaret & Kristoph have put together an engaging collection of traditional Celtic, Medieval, and Renaissance music ranging from haunting harp-based ballads and troubadour love songs to danceable jigs and reels. Their lyrics, including some in Gaelic, Medieval French, and Provencal, speak of love and longing, quests and revels, magic and transformation in a language that transports and enchants the listener.
Margaret & Kristoph have performed extensively throughout the Northwest at concert halls and festivals including Herbst Theatre, Grace Cathedral, Freight & Salvage, the Walnut Creek and Mill Valley Art & Wine Festivals, the Redwood Mountain Fair, and the Harmony Festival. They have performed in Britain and Germany and for hundreds of weddings and private events. They have recorded 12 CDs on the Flowinglass Music label, as the duo and with their bands Avalon Rising and Broceliande, and in 2008 they performed in the Disney movie Bedtime Stories.
