CD Price $16.97

A Celtic Pilgrimage is Doan’s first solo harp guitar recording where there is no mistaking that all the parts are being played at once. The deeply felt music becomes transparent and even more intimate much like in his solo concerts. These performances are closer to his original sketches improvised on location in the Celtic Isles at the sites known as “Thin Places” where it was believed that the distance from Heaven to earth was thin as well as the difference between the past, present, and future.
