Hi Mac!

I was so glad a few months to see Distant Oaks added to the music library! I have known Deborah White for several years through her online mailing list for Gaelic learners and have found her to be jsut a wonderful person and an absolute inspiration. She is a Christian, as am I, and we have developed a close on-line friendship.

And I just love her music! Her deep voice compliments the traditional feel of her music in my opinion. And I love their Gaelic songs!

Anyway, keep up the good work Mac! We have a local band that I recently heard for the first time at the Radford Highlnader Festival, called Beggars' Circus. And as soon as I can figure out how to get in touch with them, i'm hoping to talk them into putting some their music on here too!

Rich and warm, the music doesn't just emulate the sounds of the period, rather it summons the very essence of this era up like some conjuror weaving his spell.

I'm grateful to Highland Radio for making me aware for the first time of this wonderful group.

I've bought one CD and have 2 others on the way, I cannot get enough of their fantastic sound.

The music reflects celtic, medieval and renaissance traditions and sometimes a blend of all three together with a deeply spiritual quality that sets the group apart from all others I know.

As if that is not enough, the youth of it's two male members adds to my amazement that such a mature and accomplished sound can come from such young men, not forgetting one of the most beautiful female voices I have heard in quite a while.

Just a note that Distant Oaks is no longer together as a band. It's founder, Deborah White, passed away a number of years ago. She was active in the Scottish Gaelic Language discussion groups where she was known as Gobnait. A very talented musician that will be missed. I am sure her two talented sons are carrying on the tradition.....

We will keep Distant Oaks in our featured artist section and also continue playing their music as a tribute to her music.

Deborah's presence is sorely missed by the Gaelic-learning community in the US. She had patience unlike anyone else I have ever seen for learners, and her love and enthusiasm for both the language and the music was unparalleled.
