1987 Grammy Winner!

I've been a composer for greater than 50 years. Over that time I've been asked a lot about my influences and what songs inspire me. Henry Mancini is probably my favorite composer and this song, Moon Dance, is quite inspirational. It can be found on the CD, Down To The Moon, that won the Grammy in 1987. It was written by Andreas Vollenweider who is a Swiss harpist that's recorded 14 albums. Down To The Moon was his 5th album and it was re-released in 2005 and again in 2006. It's been written that his music ". . . evokes nature, magic and fairy tales. . . " AHML will be hosting a library-wide exhibit on Fairy Tales (January-March 2016). Check this out if you want a head start getting into the mood.
