About Us
RoseWynde flute and harp duo has been a working group since 1998. We arrange our own music with a blend of our classical training with our love of Celtic and traditional folk tunes. Building a body of literature for this instrumentation through writing and arranging has been a primary focus of the group. Besides recording we have published four collections from our CD's through ALRY Music in Charlotte, North Carolina. Finding traditional Irish, Scottish, and American literature to arrange, record, and publish has been professionally and artistically satisfying.
