George & Anwyn Leverett have been performing and touring
together for 10 years. They performed with Nevada based Celtic folk group Clan na
Gael from '92 to '99, and have now branched out with their new group Around the
Hearth. They are joined by Lolly Cross (if you follow the
Chiff & Fipple Message
Board, chances are that you'll recognize Lolly's name).
The group currently tours 150-220 days a year, and has become a favorite of audiences from Colorado to Washington. Their music has taken them to stages and festivals throughout the west, to providing traditional dance music for the internationally acclaimed Reno Irish Dance Company. With a style that includes haunting ballads, original compositions, and lively dance tunes, the essence of the Celtic tradition is never lost when the music is coming from Around the Hearth
We've included a few audio clips from this CD below. These
clips are all in MP3 format - if you aren't able to listen to them by clicking
on the link, you'll need to get a music player for
your computer that will play MP3 recordings. Winamp
for example, is free and very simple to download and install.

We recommend that you
listen to the "hi-fi" clips (the quality is much better), but if you have
trouble with long download times, you might want to try the "lo-fi" versions.
