After the weekend event, Leannan Sidhe and I got to play on the beach for a couple of days before continuing home.    I am sure as time goes on I will have many more beach and Faire images to share, after I catch up on the pile of work waiting!

My daughter Leannan Sidhe and her Music Project

Leannan_Sidhe_9009-2.jpg-woClick  on the photo to visit Leannan Sidhe’s Indiegogo project and see her fun video from Halloween concert.

Leannan Sidhe is a Singer Songwriter working on recording her second album of Original Music.  Her melodic tunes take on mystical and fairie like qualities, at times reminiscent of singers like Enya and other Celtic musicians.  She is also my daughter, and I am so proud of her!  She writes her own unique songs, based on stories of life.

Her first album sold well, and with help from an earlier Kickstarter Project she has made it mostly through recording on this second album, but does not have enough to finish Mastering and Duplicating the album.  By jumping in and pledging now, you will be prepaying for a copy of the music when it is finished, or depending on the level of pledge there are other prizes as well.

Please take the time to go listen to her title song on the link above, and come tell me what you think!

Thanks!

She Sings like a Nightingale!

My sweet Daughter Leannan Sidhe has been stretching her artistic wings in more ways than one the last few years. Last year she accomplished the recording of her first album of original music, as well as gotten her first published work, a short story in an anthology which can be found on the Fragile Dreams page. She also is an accomplished seamstress and created many of her own costumes. Leannan does beadwork, and is a lovely artist with pencil and watercolors as well, and can throw a great snowball to boot!

Now she is working on her second album of mostly original music, and the plan is to start recording this summer. You can hear samples of her music here

She is giving up her apartment and staying with me for awhile so she can put everything into this project. Here is where you come in! If you like to support young musicians and artists struggling to make it in this world, you can help through a website called Kickstarter which matches up people with projects with those who like to donate to such causes. I AM HAVING TROUBLE POSTING LINKS ON HERE BUT IF YOU CLICK ON HER LINK TO THE LEFT IN THE SIDEBAR YOU WILL FIND HER KICKSTARTER LINK THERE.

AFTER VIEWING, PLEASE CONSIDER A PLEDGE… SHE HAS 15 DAYS TO GATHER ANOTHER $1,005. THE WAY KICKSTARTER WORKS IS THAT IF THE GOAL IS NOT REACHED BY THE DEADLINE, THE ARTIST GETS NONE OF THE MONEY. NONE OF THE MONEY IS TAKEN FROM YOUR ACCOUNT UNTIL THE END OF THE PROJECT, AND THERE ARE MANY TIERS OF DONATION LEVELS WITH BONUS PRIZES YOU WILL RECEIVE AS WELL. I HAVE ALSO PROMISED TO SEND ONE OF MY PHOTO CARDS TO THANK ANYONE WHO DONATES AT LEAST $15 OR MORE, AND MY 8 X 10 IMAGES ARE SOME OF THE PRIZES.

Leannan has been working with James Alexander Adams, who not only does all the recording studio work, but also sings with her on a few songs and plays several instruments on the first album.
