one of the reasons that Fields of Green has the power to instill
calm, encourage reflection, gentle thought and well being is that
these are all qualities shown and valued by ourselves. We also valued
the opportunity to get together once again to perform and record
this album. Thanks to all that played a part especially the folk
Edge Studios whose support really has made the most of
the groups efforts.
And the newest addition, Oceans of Blue was created in Tarshito's solar powered studio with the gifted talent of local musicians including the talented vocals of Elen of Evolove and Chris James

songs to create a contemporary, trance-like sound.Known for his
unique techno style, Si believes the didgeridoo, known by the indigenous
Australians as the "yidaki", is an instrument which opens
the gateway to the Dreamtime, and connects us with the great spirit.

comes from the depths of his heart. He now makes harps, being responsible
for a small local harp revolution.More info on Rob and his other
