Darren Raleigh: Buy

Silverwheel - CD

Silverwheel is the long awaited first offering that answers the question, "You got a CD?"

It is Darren's interpretation of the work of the ancient Celtic bard: just one man and one harp.

In ancient Celtic myth the Silverwheel was a metaphor for the place where the soul rests between lives.

In Silverwheel Darren sings selections from the emotional range of a human lifetime: an innocent youth hopes to win the love of his "Cavan Girl," and an old man recalls his lost home in "The Rare Oul' Times."  A poor farm labourer recalls how his life changed at the "Hiring Fair," and a man recalls the simple joy that was "The Summer Before the War."

His Celtic harp solos range from the simple lightness of "Carolan's Quarrel with the Landlady," to the sentimentality of "When My False Love Was True," and from the spooky "Song of the Water Kelpie" to the wrenching "Carolan's Farewell to Music."

Adding his theatre training to his harp experience, he is a professional storyteller also, and has an extensive resume of harping/storytelling performances.
