The American/Irish duo’s music has become a mainstay in the Contemporary Celtic music genre with acclaimed releases such as Byzantium, The Bard & The Warrior, King Raven, Patrick, and A Quiet Knowing. Their songs have been selected for many best selling contemporary instrumental compilations including those released by Windham Hill (Celtic Christmas, Winter Solstice) and Hearts of Space (Celtic Twilight). Their music is often connected with the novels of Stephen R. Lawhead and they have had music featured in films such as Martin Scorcese’s Gangs of New York.
Johnson’s recent solo efforts include, Journey Prayers and A Thin Silence which reflect his work with Selah, a contemplative worship service he presents in many churches. He has also collaborated with the renowned guitarist Phil Keaggy on two recordings: Frio Suite and WaterSky.
Dunning’s latest solo recording is Puck Fair’s Forgotten Carnival. He is a former member of the band, Nightnoise (Shadow Of Time, Something Of Time).
Wendy joined the trio in 2009 bringing a rich versatility and creative presence honed from many years as a performer and session player in the Pacific Northwest. Her newest recording is Place of Refuge, which also features Johnson and Dunning.
