MAGICAL STRINGS


Islands Calling

Islands Calling, Magical Strings' ninth release, has been hailed by the leading music trade press as "...their best album yet." Islands Calling bathes the listener in a sound rich with Images of forgotten worlds and magical lands. The theme of this new album is a culmination of Philip and Pam's lives and world travels, exploring the furthest reaches of Celtic influence and other harp-like instruments to form an invisible bridge that joins the music of different cultures. While still embracing its Celtic roots, Islands Calling moves from Ireland to Madagascar, from Jamaica to Puget Sound, from Maine's Penboscot Bay to Maui, to become a joyful musical journey to islands around the world.

Special guest appearances on Islands Calling include the brilliant steel string guitarist Alex de Grassi, master cellist Eugene Friesen, slack-key great Keola Beamer, Irish piper virtuoso Tom Creegan, and producer Cary Black. Featured also are three Boulding family members: Brenin on cello, Morgan on field organ, and Brittany on violin.

Islands Calling is a personal musical pilgrimage to some of the most enchanting islands in the world. A voyage not to be missed.
