Album Review
Margy Kahn
Reviewed 2017-01-22 
Aryeh Franfurter and Lisa Lynne, California harpers who met on the gigging road and later married, have teamed up to produce this beautiful CD of tunes they composed and arranged, as well as some traditional favorites; Aryeh started off as a philosophy professor and child violinist; Lisa as bass player in a rock band; Aryeh has branched off from Celtic tunes to Scandinavian and from harp to nyckelharpe (a keyed violin); uncommon music that feels eerily familiar; relatively sedate rhythms (no jigs or reels)

NO FCC's (all instrumental); Favorite tracks: 1, 6, 8, 10, 11

*1- Aurora Borealis (5:50) –lush original composition by Lisa with medieval and Celtic flavor; lovely violin and flute over deep resonant harp

2- A Fond Wish (5:28) – original composition by Lisa – simple tune that has a bit of an O'Carolan feel; mellow

3- Interlace (1:27) – pretty hammered dulcimer sounds

4- Bandora's Box (5:36) -composed by Lisa; pretty treble harp arpeggios and chords with bowed bass

5 – Interlace II (1:40) – pretty string and flute interlude

*6- My Lagan Love (3:38) – beautiful mysterious rendering of this modal classic

7 – The Lea Rig (3:50) – a traditional song; slow and pretty

*8- Interlace III (1:45) – interesting low-pitched bowing with sympathetic strings; very Scandinavian

9- Eliz Iza (3:28) – traditional waltz tune with pretty treble harp and bowed strings

*10- Roundelay (4:30) – Lisa's tune-- Swedish flavor with guitar, violin, and flute

**11- Autumn Waltz (4:42) – Aryeh's tune – very danceable and pretty with the treble harp

12- Interlace IV (2:40) – nice interlude with fiddle, flute, and strings

13- Whisper (4:40) – slow waltz

*14- A Bountiful Life (4:38) – another lush composition by Lisa

15 – Interlace V (2:50) – pretty outro with slow fiddle and strings
