A Sweeter Place ~ Girsa | My first CD cover!

Anyone who knows me well, knows what a passion I have for music.  Before I had kids, I had the distinct pleasure of shooting my true love…live music.  Live music has always fed my soul and being able to shoot a wide array of concert photography in New York City in the late 90’s was an indescribable thrill.   When my kids came along, I thought the better of running off to concert halls after dinner, so that career fell to the wayside and was replaced by children’s portraiture ~ as much a thrill for me as music.  One of these days, I’ll dust off my slides and share some favorites…

Needless to say when the opportunity to shoot a cd cover for a band presented itself, I jumped!  High!  I am extremely pleased to present my first CD cover…

Meet Girsa ~ eight beautiful and talented young women who play traditional Irish music.  Fun, energetic and down to earth, they were a delight to work with.  From our first concept meeting to the final session, these women were filled with enthusiasm and humor…and I love that!  Not to mention, they didn’t mind trudging through thigh-high wheat fields with their instruments in tow. But the best part for me was the impromptu jam session in the field while I was setting up my shots.  Picture listening to the lively and joyful sounds of Irish music in a beautiful sun-kissed wheat field.  Spectacular!

Girsa performs internationally, with a variety of nationwide tour dates this summer.  And tonight they’ll be at Connolly’s on 45th in NYC!  Check em out and let them take you to “A Sweeter Place.”
