The recordings produced by Harp and Harmony reflect the consciousness of
living in harmony with nature by blending natural sounds recorded in the
Preserve with music arranged, written and performed by professional
musicians using clean, renewable solar energy.
Harps, strings, Native American Flute, harmonica, tenor sax and voice are
some of the instruments we use in original arrangements of songs from
ancient to modern, and from different cultures resulting in an interestingly
beautiful, eclectic mixture.
“Their music is like a running stream, very relaxing and soothing. I play
their recordings at my art shows.”
retired Department Director, Smithsonian Institute.
“Your musicality, your handling of the concept, your artistry, your rich and
satisfying repertoire, your wonderful association with and collaboration
with such kindred talents, the way you interweave the music of man and
nature is just a joy. I put the CD on to start the day with peace and
“…the caring – of the earth and of others comes through the music. How
perfect for my Reiki and Healing practice.
