Here is the Press Release:

In her fourth and final concert for 2009, Mary-Florence Bartley joins forces with the internationally renowned singer, songwriter, recording artist, Heather Dale for an evening of traditional folk and Celtic music with a Christmas theme.

Born and raised in Toronto, Heather has toured many parts of the world as she plays a wide variety of folk instruments, including piano, bodhran drum, mountain & hammered dulcimers, bowed psaltery, and recorders & tin whistles.

Heather offers a new type of Celtic music for the 21st century: a playful, passionate blend of tradition and innovation. Her rich voice and evocative recordings have earned her fans around the world.

As a modern woman with Celtic roots, Heather cheerfully disregards the stereotypical limits for both Celtic balladeers and folk singer-songwriters. She excels at finding contemporary themes within old material, and fuses the Celtic folk tradition with a healthy mix of modern blues, jazz and world music influences. Heather Dale recently released her eleventh CD "The Green Knight" (2009, Amphis) during one of her rare breaks from touring.
