Matt & Rebecca Stuart (Minstrel Streams): Products

New Horizon - CD

 

 

Minstrel Streams (Matt & Rebecca Stuart) ventured to Will Ackerman's Imaginary Road Studios in Windham County, Vermont to record their latest CD. Musical magic happened in the mountains of southern Vermont.

This beautiful album features Matt Stuart playing a Steinway B Grand Piano and Taylor acoustic guitar; and Rebecca Stuart playing a Gemeinhardt flute and Native American flutes. They were also joined by many wonderful musicians such as:
Eugene Friesen (GRAMMY winning cellist); Jill Haley (English Horn); Paul Kochanski (string bass); Matt Heaton (Bodhran drum); Noah Wilding (vocals); and Tom Eaton (percussion and accordian).

This inspired CD covers a spectrum of styles...from the classically flavored "Ancient Mariner" and "Come to the Waters" to the Native American themed "Dawn Rising" and "Visions for Tomorrow." World music elements can be found in "Memories of Kyoto" and "Celestial's Rainbow" (Celtic and Spanish).

Special thanks to Tom Eaton for his excellent job of recording, mixing, and mastering; and Will Ackerman for enabling this project.

"New Horizon" has received worldwide radio play and is featured on Pandora and television's Music Choice "Soundscapes." This beautiful CD was also a GRAMMY contender.

Music  should touch the heart and soul of the listener, and Matt and Rebecca Stuart’s music does just that. From feeling happiness and joy while listening to “Hills of Joy” and “The Piper”, to experiencing the soothing touch of “The Healer” are just some examples of this. Moods also change when the instruments are used for a variety of musical experiences, including folk guitar/flute combinations, solo keyboard, and keyboard/flute duets. There is a Celtic touch in the song “Emerald Eyes”, a classical sound in “The Gift”, and a comfortable “folksy” feeling in “The Gathering”. With such a variety of music, this CD will bring delight to all of its listeners.

 Odell Borg, founder of High Spirits Flutes has been handcrafting Native American style flutes since 1990. “From day one I have taken great pride in upholding the MADE IN THE USA tradition of craftsmanship. We are committed to being green-minded and using non-toxic materials. Each flute is made from raw, kiln dried wood that is finished with a unique formula of non-toxic oil that protects and gives each flute its luster.” - Odell Borg

All High Spirits flutes are constructed with a uni-body design, which means that they are crafted out of a single piece of wood. The tolerances on each flute are precise and measurable to thousandths of an inch. After the hole pattern and air passages are created each flute is hand sanded, burnished and then sealed with several coats of our specially formulated non-toxic oil.

All High Spirits flutes come with a free “How-to-Play” book and DVD that include fingering charts and flute care. These instructional materials will guide you from never having played music, to creating your own melodies in a very short time.

We offer several flute packages including special offers for the “First Time Player”. They have everything you need to be successful in your musical journey.

High Spirits carries a variety of flute accessories including flute bags and cases, stands, songbooks, music CDs, How-to DVDs, and other special finds. Many of these useful accessories are offered at a discount when added to your flute purchase

If you are looking for custom flutes, consider our line of Signature Flutes. They are a limited edition and we only make 100 of each design per key. The combination of the turbulence reducing construction, unique designs and special inlays of semi-precious stones, makes these flutes a wonderful addition to any flute collection.

Because of their accurate tuning and high quality construction many professional musicians choose to play High Spirits flutes.

Cradle of the Moon - Solo piano CD

 

Matt Stuart's original piano compositions are a blend of classical, folk, and world music. His unique style has been described as spiritual, lyrical, mystical, and passionate. His music touches the hearts and souls of his listeners. Matt sees music as a means to communicate that which is beyond words. It is a means to communicate profound meaning though music that is both accessible and moving. He seeks to bring the listener into a place of peace, joy, and wonder.

In the artist's own words, "Cradle of the Moon" is one of the most inspired works I've ever done. Every aspect of the project fit together wonderfully. I had the honor to work with award-winning producer Dennis Dragon and world class engineer Emmett Sargeant. The album was recorded over three magical nights at Tantrum Studios ("Abbey Road West") in Montecito, CA. in April 2007 on a Yamaha CS Concert Grand Piano.
