Mary-Kate Spring Lee and Jim Hancock present A Minstrel Meets a Harper!
We met at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire many years ago, and have been performing sets together there every chance we get. We love playing our harp and guitar together, and the way our voices blend is truly joyful for us.
This is a thirty minute long EP with eight of our favorite songs, from ancient instrumental melodies to songs in both English and Gaelic.
We both cherish the storytelling power of music, and the spontaneity and fun of playing live music together and with our friends.
We hope you will enjoy this offering of tunes and songs from our repertoire.
Produced, engineered, mixed, and mastered by Jim Hancock.
