If you've been to Seattle's Dusty Strings Music Shop, you've likely met Molly Bauckham. She's a wispy elf of a lady who specializes in harps and friendly smiles. She's part of the Dusty Strings that I love, the open and caring music store that caters to our homey community of roots musicians. She's also a stellar Celtic harpist.
Her new album, Maid on the Shore, just came out. Recorded at Empty Sea Studios, the album features traditional and original Celtic tunes and songs. Molly's got a lovely, light touch on the harp and her voice rides a great line between classically trained and folk-informed. From what I've heard, the album is quite beautiful.
This Friday, Molly has a CD Release Party at Dusty Strings for her brand-new album of original and traditional Celtic music. She'll be joined by guests from Seattle's Celtic scene: John Peekstok (guitar/cittern), Sarah Bost (flute), and Richard Hill (backing vocals). Show up and support one of Seattle's friendliest folk musicians!

ALSO: Dang, decisions decisions. Empty Sea Studios is holding an excellent concert Friday night as well. Cahalen Morrison, who you'll remember from the Hearth Music blogs (and Listening Lounge) will be soloing at the studios. This is a great chance to catch his powerful songwriting, at once informed by the deep undercurrents of old-time ballads and the lone, empty spaces of his childhood in New Mexico. PLUS Portland bard Huck Notari will be opening with Karin Nystrom. Together they sing beautiful, mellow, whispery dream folk music that we've found quite enchanting.
