'Harp to Heart' concert coming to Two Dog Yoga on Saturday, May 11th

20130508-111741.jpgTwo Dog Yoga is rolling up the yoga mats and bringing in the harps this Saturday night (May 11th) for a concert at the Lake City yoga studio on Mother’s Day Eve!

Folk musician Martha Gallagher will collaborate with local harp players Seumas Gagne and Leslie McMichael during the Saturday evening concert at Two Dog Yoga Studio (12549 28th Ave NE).

Gallagher’s career includes solo national tours sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts, performing with six-time Grammy winners The Chieftains, and teaching as a visiting artist at prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. Describing the ebullient Gallagher’s personality and music, North Country Public Radio host Todd Moe summed her up by saying, “Martha Gallagher is Janis Joplin-Joan Baez-Jean Redpath all rolled into one. She's a treasure; her music lifts up the spirit and reminds us why we're here."

Seumas Gagne is a Scottish Gaelic teacher, singer and harp player with strong ties in both Seattle and Vancouver, B.C He is a frequent guest musician for local choirs such as Puget Sound Revels, City Cantabile Choir, the Vancouver Gaelic Choir, and others. Gagne’s debut album “Baile Ard” was released to acclaim in 2012, and when he is not playing his harp, he blogs about gay rights, polytheism, cooking and sewing.

Vashon Island harpist Leslie McMichael is well-known as a Suzuki teacher at Music Center of the Northwest and as a performer of original scores with vintage silent movie screenings. For the Mother’s Day weekend concert, she plans to share a sampling of her film scores, as well showcase her witty original songs on Celtic harp.
