Crooked Tree CD|
Â Â Â Â Liner Notes from the CD:Â Long ago along the Lake Michigan shoreline in the nortwest corner of M9chigan's lower peninsula, the Crooked Tree [Waugonawkisa] served as a prominent landmark for native Odawa returning from long voyages,Â It has been said that the sight of the Crooked Tree brought great joy to these travelers because it signified that home was near.
Â Â Â Â I have never seen the Crooked Tree but after finding my way to this corner of Michigan nearly 20 years ago, I think I understand the sense of joy this landmark evokes.Â It's in the cool, fresh air, the majestic expanse of the Great Lakes, the vast network of trails through dense, hilly forests; the brilliant sunsets; the rise of colors in the fall; the profound quiet of the star-filled nights; the call of the loons ... and it's because this is home.Â This is where my wife and I raised our daughters, where I have been blessed with amazing friends and generous communities, and, yes, where I am continually awed by the area's natural beauty.
Â Â Â Â This collection of original solo guitar compositions is my expression of celebration and gratitude for the people, places and experiences I have treasured over the last 20 uyears.Â I hope the music provides listeners with some of the peace and joy I have been fortunate to find in the land of the Crooked Tree.

Solace for the Season CD|
What I hope you hear is easy listening music consisting of traditional hymns with decent guitar playing on great vintage instruments. It is my hope that Solace & Grace can put your mind and heart in a good place. What you will hear are the true voices of each guitar, much like what you would hear if you listened to my playing in my living room. The only difference is that there is more than one of me on each track. The arrangements of these hymns are all original and this recording process allowed me to do what I do best, backup another player. In this instance, I accompany myself. Some of the hymns have very sparse backing tracks of guitar and mandolin, while other hymns are more akin to guitar duets.
TrueNorth Harp Duo|
With a rich orchestral sound, impeccable ensemble and innovative programming, True North Harp Duo performs throughout the USA and Canada. John Wickey and Lynne Aspnes first performed together in 1992 for the American Harp Society National Conference in San Diego, California. That concert inspired the formation of their first harp duo, Two Part Invention, which ended in 1995 when John moved to the San Francisco bay area to pursue his interest in information technology.
John and Lynne reconnected in 2008 and immediately began planning the revival of their partnership. During a location photo shoot, a sculpture named True North provided the inspiration for the duo's n\ew name. Although the course of their lives had taken them in different directions, the guiding principles of musicianship and service to the harp brought them back together.
