WOODSONG is my studio/ workshop in the village of Rosh Pina, near the Sea of Galilee in Israel. It’s been a lifelong dream of mine to have a workshop, where I could make and sell the musical instruments that I build – Celtic Harps, Belly Harp (for pregnant women), a wide range of door harps, didgeridoos, “musical sculptures” and musical tables. My whole family has been involved in Woodsong in one way or another. My wife, Les, deals with all the emails and internet site, and in the early years our three children helped wherever they could. Our youngest daughter, Maya, plays and sings with me on the “Woodsong” disc. She is an extremely talented singer-songwriter (who has just been voted the “Discovery of the Year” by ACUM- the Israeli Artists Association). Her CD, “Safe & Sound” is available through our website. Grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa. The sounds and rhythms of Africa, so much a part of my surroundings, have been strong influences in my life and work.
I invite you to participate in a musical experience at my studio in Rosh Pina.
In these musical workshops, I play on and explain about the various instruments I build: Celtic harps, Door Harps, Belly Harp – an invention of mine inspired by my daughter’s first pregnancy – marimbas, xylophones, kalimbas and didgeridoos.
