ECHOES of EDEN
Sarah and Wendy sing A' Capella - a style which enhances the pure tones of their voices, ethereal high notes and mellow harmonies. They carefully choose the themes of their music to reflect a peaceful and loving philosophy of life. Their themes include conservation, peace, love, human rights and the eternal nature of the soul. Wendy composes many of the flowing melodies and inspiring lyrics of the songs performed by ECHOES OF EDEN and Sarah creates unique and gentle harmonies.
Wendy and Sarah have enjoyed performing together professionally for over 2 years now. They perform for Special occasions, Festivals, Environment days, Wedding and Celebration of Life Ceremonies and Charity events. They also perform regularly at Folk Redlands http://www.folkredlands.com/ in the Indigiscapes Environmental Center at 17 Runnymede Rd, Capalaba. http://indigiscapes.redland.qld.gov.au/whats%20on/Pages/Specialevents.aspx

The Celts are the descendents of tribes from various ethnic origins - from Germany down to modern Spain and from Ireland to as far east as Turkey. They shared a distinctive style of language, mythology, warfare, art and music. From their heartlands, they migrated in all directions, fighting and trading and leaving in their wake superbly crafted weaponry, jewelry and artifacts of artistic brilliance.
In the last hundred years there has ben a revival of interest in the traditions of these people, especially the poetry, story-telling, spiritual beliefs and music from the lands of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall and Brittany - the last remnants of a culture which once dominated the whole of Europe
Sarah and Wendy are Australians who were born in England. They have Irish and Scottish ancestry and are naturally attracted to their heritage of Celtic music.
The Irish say there are two kinds of people: those who are Irish and those who want to be Irish.
