Amphis Music announces the launch of contemporary Celtic musician Heather Dale’s latest album Sphere, a compilation of 11 tracks that weave together folk, ambient electronica, and world music. Sphere marks Heather’s landmark 20th album release, timed to coincide with her 20th anniversary as a professional recording musician, and will be officially unveiled at the album release concert at the historic Church of the Holy Trinity on May 4, 2019 at 7:30 pm.
All of Sphere will be performed, along with selections from Heather’s earlier albums. Heather will be joined on stage by the Amphis Chamber Strings, featuring arrangements by long-term collaborator Ben Deschamps, with Amanda Penner and Felix Flores on violin, and Leanne Wright on cello. Jazz percussionist John Stadtlander from Thunder Bay rounds out the ensemble.
On the recording, collaborators also included early music specialist Ben Grossman (Loreena McKennitt, Tafelmusik), Maple Blues Award-winning drummer Jim Casson (Dark Orchard), and Canadian producer Dave MacKinnon.
