Proverbs of the Moment
Gaelic Proverbs come primarily from the western Highlands and Islands of Scotland, and they have a distinctly rural or agricultural flavor which reflects
the society from which they were gathered. It is to be expected that many of them pertain to the weather, to the planting of crops, and to country life
in general. Others reflect the Gaelic love of company and hospitality, fear of poverty and laziness.
Cha sheas cŕirdeas air a léth-chois.
Friendship cannot stand on one leg.
Few countries have a greater number of proverbs than has Scotland. Even today, everyday speech in Scotland is
sprinkled with them. Scots are wonderfully given to this way of speaking, and the lovely Scots tongue loses much
of its flavor when forced to translate their unqiue language. Those that appear in English have been preserved
that way for at least 200 years!
A gude name is sooner tint (lost) than won.

Jay & Abby Michaels - The Harper and The Minstrel are an act that is hard to describe. Incorporating elements of Celtic, Folk, Rock, Classical, Baroque and Renaissance into something that is uniquely their own. The duo specializes in beautiful airs and ballads, the occasional jig or reel, many of their own original compositions, music from the Baroque and Renaissance periods and their unique arrangements of Traditional Celtic tunes and songs by artists like Sting and Led Zeppelin.
Their music is enjoyed, and their musicianship is appreciated by audiences of all ages. They have performed in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida, Arizona, California and all over New England at Renaissance Faires, Folk and Celtic Festivals, Coffee Houses, Farmers Markets and at other venues.
"You can best judge a musician’s acumen by the way they interpret music, whether that music is familiar to you or obscure...Jay and Abby Michaels’ deft adaptations of songs from Sting to Robert Burns are thrilling, and they reveal the pair to be artists of some skill.
"Lilting vocals, hypnotic harp, and occasional guitar and flute evoke the sensation of a warm spring day spent in an enchanted place."
"Gentle, lovely music"
Their influences include early music from Europe and the Celtic lands, Yes, Loreena McKennitt, Sting, The New World Renaissance Band, Cantiga and Led Zeppelin. They have recorded several CD's together including:

The Celtic Zodiac
The Vine, 9/2 - 9/29

In the cool Celtic climate, the GrapeVine required much care in order to bear fruit and became symbolic of sacred knowledge and spiritual initiation, as well as a symbol of sensuality and emotions. The Vine of the Ogham Alphabet is the GrapeVine. Sacred to the deities, grapes were (and are still) used in the making of wine, allowing those who indulge to speak with truth...at least as they perceive it to be...and to release inhibitions. Wine was also once used to stimulate prophecy in the seers by allowing such sages to reach deep within their inner selves, with intuition acting as their guide.
Unlike the other Ogham trees and shrubs, the Vine is a more cultivated species. Nevertheless, there is no doubt that the Vine has been known and propagated in the British Isles for a very long time. The distinctive fruits and foliage of this hardy and long-living plant appear frequently on Bronze Age artifacts. Within the Ogham, the Vine is known as the "Weaver," given its tendency to entwine around others, often linking two together. To the Celts, this was indicative of the need to understand the importance of respect toward the options and actions of others. A determined shrub, the Vine is often found in hard-to-reach areas, leaving a delicate and beautiful path in its wake. The fruit of the Vine has long been known to release inhibitions and loosen tongues, thus allowing those who partake of its harvest to speak more freely. It is, however, easy to fall victim to the Vine's intoxicating nature. Noah, the biblical patriarch, is said to have planted a vineyard on Mount Ararat afte........ more
