Music by:


Golden Bough -- Celtic Rooted in the traditional Celtic music of Ireland and Scotland (as well as Wales, Cornwall, The Isle of Man, French Brittany and Spanish Galicia), these modern day minstrels have expanded upon the ethnic styles through the development of intriguing arrangements and original compositions. In this way, they have created a sound unique unto themselves. Since their formation in 1980, Golden Bough has traveled great distances to numerous countries, to bring their music to enthusiastic folk fans the world over. Backing themselves on an array of acoustic instruments, including; Celtic harp, guitar, octave- mandolin, mandolin, accordion, penny-whistle and bodhran, they blend their voices in pristine harmony and feature haunting solo vocals. In the recording studio, as well as on stage, Golden Bough captures the essence and joy of traditional music.



Laura Kemp -- Since 1990, Laura has been a fixture on the Eugene, Oregon folk scene, and over the years she has performed in a number of configurations: captivating Northwest audiences as a solo artist, her unique brand of acoustic poetry earning her comparisons to Bob Dylan and Nanci Griffith; playing to sold out audiences at the W.O.W. Hall as part of Eugene's power girl group, Babes With Axes; as the front person for the Laura Kemp Band, with Brian West and T.R. Kelley on drums and bass; as the host of a writers in the round at Sam Bond's Garage, along with Eugene's folk treasure Peter Wilde; at the historic Inn of the Beginning in Cotati, CA with members of the Bay area's Little Big Band; on the Main Stage of the Oregon Country Fair with Mare Wakefield and T.R. Kelley; or paired down as a duo with Memphis player, Roy Brewer on fiddle and mandolin.

Her dynamic performing style, refined confidence, and uncompromising frankness on stage have repeatedly earned her "Favorite Female Performer" honors at the WOW Hall in Eugene, "Best Musician" from the Eugene Weekly, "Best Local Band/Musician" from In Town, and "Queen of Eugene Folk" by the Statesman Journal, Salem. The Willamette Week (Portland) says "the singer and guitarist plays with a breadth rarely found in regional acts, picking the strings of her acoustic guitar with an earnestness befitting her emotional delivery."

"Performer extraordinaire, Laura Kemp (has the) ability to make an audience chuckle, tear up, and feel an instant connection with her lyrics - all in the course of one song." - San Francisco Bay Guardian
