This is a preview of the music for the story of “Layliana”

This is a preview of the music for the story of “Layliana”, the first in a series of Fairytales  (Books with Graphic audio and Illustrations)  by James & Susan Blennerhassett & Vitya Malirsh which will be published later this year.

I will be starting a Fundit campaign shortly to help us get the first two books published. Please keep an eye out for this project and I would appreciate your help in this labour of love.

Three generations of Blennerhassetts on stage together

Had the great pleasure of playing on stage together with my mother and two daughters, accompanied by Kieran Quinn on piano and Ken Mc Donald on percussion at the Sligo Grammar school concert for the Northwest hospice on Saturday night at the Knocknarea arena in Sligo.
We played a piece of original music called ” A somewhat unusual afternoon tea ” from one of the forthcoming Fairytale series of books with Graphic audio and Illustrations by my sister Susan, her husband Vitya and myself. Photos courtesy of magnumlady.com
