Bio

Joseph was given his first native american flute by his father when he was 4 years old. His Celtic influence comes from his gr-grandfather who was a bagpipe player with a family history from Galicia. Laralyns vocals and harp playing have a Celtic root that comes from her gr grandfather who immigrated to the US from Ireland bringing with him his fiddle and songs from the tribes of Eire (Ireland) and Albanach(Scotland). The Native American vocal, flute, and drum influence comes from Josephs Arawakan Taino heritage and Laralyns Muscogee Creek, Choctaw and Cherokee bloodlines.

There are many people in the United States who have a blended heritage of Native and Celtic. We were two cultures with many similarities. Clans, Chiefs, wearing eagle feathers, drums, shared persecution of our indigenous roots. Also, the Irish and Scots were the only ones crazy enough to go out into the wilderness to trade with our people:)

As a result there are many blessed blends. A term coined by the Scots during the 17th century to describe the union(marriage) of a Native and a Celt or the children who were a result of those marriages. Blessed blend because they had the best of both tribal worlds.

We lift up our voices to The Creator to honor Him
through our songs. Giving back to The Creator the gifts that He has given us through sound.
