Music for Healing

The malfunctioning gall bladder is finally out! So for the next few days I'll be taking it easy, and listening to instead of playing, music. The first artist I've been listening to is one that I've found only recently. I heartily recommend Cathie Ryan if you like celtic or folk music.

Cathie's website is at You can read all about her background there and hear samples of her new album. It turns out that she used to live very close to me, and I never heard of her until only recently from Richard McMullin from Blackthorn.

Here's a sample of her music. I think you'll love it!
Be Like the Sea


  1. I haven't checked in for a long time, and see that you just had your surgery. I'm sure you will feel so much better. I had mine removed three years ago, and am so glad to not have that pain anymore. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

  2. My computer has died so I am even further behind than usual. I hope by now you are back to feeling good and playing your harp. I'm enjoying mine more and more all the time as I improve and have found a song I just love, altho am still very slow and bad at playing it. (My Love is Like a Red, Red Rose in S. Woods book)
