ACACIA LYRA is not just your average harp and voice duo. Janine Dudding and Susan Sweeney Hermon sing in English, French, Spanish and Gaelic, accompanying themselves on Celtic harps and guitars.
The duo will launch their third CD at the NAC Fourth Stage December 3rd. This latest CD, entitled Silver Sun, is a unique offering of original material and their own arrangements of seasonal and Christmas music from around the world.
The duo will be joined by storyteller Gail Anglin, and guest musicians on flute, violin, cello, and percussion.
Susan and Janine's music is a beautiful melding of voices, instruments and spirit. A true friendship in music.
Sharlene Wallace, harpist-composer
