Here is the captivating sequel to The Fairie Round - and Shelley Phillips once again dazzles the ears with her work on oboe, harp, English horn, recorders and pennywhistle. With her talented friends including Barry Phillips, William Coulter, special guests Linda Waterfall and Harris Moore, and others, on guitar, cello, flute and more, she presents enchanting instrumental arrangements of folk, traditional, classical and contemporary music from England, Wales, Ireland, Scotland and Brittany.

Elizabethan songs (When Laura Smiles, It Was a Lover, and His Lasse), Renaissance dances (Pavane and Galliard, Courante), traditional Celtic airs (Sally Gardens, The Faerie Queene, The Parting Glass) and Breton rondes are among the delights you'll discover on this charming album by one of Gourd's favorite artists.

Shelley Phillips (harp, recorders, oboe, English horn and whistle) received her M.M. from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. In addition to performing and recording in the San Francisco and Monterey Bay Areas, she is director of the Santa Cruz Community Music School, which offers music lessons in the folk and conservatory traditions. She is a member of the Narnian Consort, Orison, the Shaker Ensemble and the Anjali Quartet, and has appeared on many Gourd recordings including Wondrous Love, Orison, Simple Gifts, Tree of Life, The World Turned Upside Down and The Fairie Round.
