Video -Lisa Lynne visits Bele Chere festival and plays in concert

Hi there,
Below is my latest video entry from the road. It runs about seven minutes long. I was in North Carolina again this past weekend, playing a show in Waynesville and a concert in Asheville. On a rare weekend day off, I walked around the Bele Chere festival in downtown Asheville. It is normally a very crazy festival, but this day was called "Family Day" so there is no alcohol served and a much mellower vibe. There is lots of great music in Asheville, its like the Nashville of the Southeast. Its a very progressive enlightened community nestled along the Blue Ridge Mountains. I spend a lot of time in North Carolina this time of year, as it is high festival season. So you'll be seeing more in the coming weeks no doubt.

The second half of this video is a couple excerpts from the concert I played with George on flutes. The final segment you'll see sounds like there are tracks playing along with the harp and flute, but it is all done live, using whats called a long delay, it takes what we just played seconds before and loops it around again so we can play harmonies on top of what was just played. Hopefully the sound quality will be ok enough to hear the music. It all has to be scrunched to fit in these blog formats so we'll see.

I hope you enjoy this entry... more to come soon.
love, lisa

Video - Lisa Lynne plays harp for Highland Games

Hi friends, I haven't posted for while because I have been on the road for a month.
I have a lot of footage to go through to show you that, but in the meantime I put together some clips from last weekend's festival in Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. I hope I captured the essense of the Scottish Highland Games at Grandfather mountain. Playing flute with me is George Tortorelli
