Cruit go nÓr • Harp of Gold

Charlie Heymann

CharlieCharlie grew up with traditional music in Chicago, and through his anthropology degree he participated in Northwestern's inaugural ethnomusicology program. After touring with an Irish band in the mid-1970's, Charlie and Ann formed Clairseach in 1979 and have since performed throughout the United States, Europe and Australia, often joined by their step-dancing daughters. A multi-instrumentalist and natural vocalist, Charlie's combined interest in traditional music, sean nos singing, and folklore have contributed greatly to the development of material on this recording.
