The Mooncoin Album

Musical Instruments - those graceful remnants of trees long cut, strung and banded with bright metal that was scooped from deep underground and worked, have at least two kinds of charm. First there is the charm of shape, Inspiration, and kind. The harps, pure straight strings resonating all over the ancient world, overtones reaching through today, ring with majesty, while flutes shape breath to tone, and pipes cry the name of every tribe. The fiddle laughs and dances noun expanses of time and distance. All the history In each Instrument - and then there is the charm of touch. Each players hands, the feel of the wood on the skin, the breath, the concentration, the sound - then the light deep within the sound, and the merging of the inward eye and the heart. Musical Instruments - and the sound of Mooncoin. - Kevin Carr
