                     FEATURES FOR THE WEEK
                   Monday September 18, 2000
Ask any Celtic harpist, from Loreena McKennitt to Patrick Ball to
Maire Brennan who influenced them and the name Alan Stivell is
sure to arise.  His 1971 album, RENAISSANCE OF THE CELTIC HARP
turned a generation on to this neglected instrument.  Stivell
himself has been playing it since the early 1950s when he made
his first album.  Stivell is still a favorite with his fusion of
traditional Breton folk music and rock arrangements.  His latest
album is BACK TO BREIZH (Dreyfus).  Stivell takes on a Celtic
harp odyssey. 

                   Tuesday September 19, 2000
Mizuyo Komiya is a young Japanese musician playing an ancient
Japanese instrument, the koto.  Only she doesn't play the
traditional 13-stringed version, but a large 25-stringed
variation.   A zither-style instrument that is tuned with
moveable bridges, with strings plucked on one side and bent on
the other to change their pitch, Komiya weaves a richly detailed
soundworld on her latest album, LULLABY (Pacific Moon).  In
Tokyo, Mizuyo Komiya takes us between the strings.

                        MARY JANE LAMOND
Nova Scotia singer Mary Jane Lamond takes Scottish traditional
music and updates it with modern beats and atmospheres mixed in
with location recordings of the original songs. Mary Jane Lamond
talks about traditional music in a modern world on her new album,
LAN DUIL (Wicklow).

                   JIM COLE'S HARMONIC VOICES
Jim Cole is a musician living in Connecticut who's inspired by
music from Mongolia and Tibet. In the tradition of DAVID HYKES'
HARMONIC CHOIR, Cole specializes in a vocal technique called
harmonic singing.  He sings a note and splits it into overtones
making it sound like 2, 3, even four singers are performing at
once.  Back in 1994, he deployed this technique in the deep echo
of a watertank near his home.  He put out the album COALESCENCE
(Spectral Spiral) and has just released a second recording from
those sessions called SKY.  We return once again to the ethereal
world of Jim Cole and his Spectral Voices.
