I saw that Dusty Strings has produced a DVD with Laurie Riley, called “Secrets of the Celtic Style”. There is a booklet published with it.
I have hear a lot of good about this book, and watching Laurie Riley’s fantastic video on Double-Strung harps on YouTube convinced me to rent out my own double-strung harp : The Dusty Strings FH26 double.
I am so glad that this video is both free and of high quality!
Now, I am looking for other material and the DVD and book “Secret of Celtic Style” has been highly recommended to me. Unfortunately, getting a copy of it seems very hard. Plus, I am encountering another problem : the DVD is apparently only made for American DVD players, and I am European. No American DVD can be read here and that makes it extremely frustrating to have rare material.
My questions are :
- Do you know if the book + DVD are available somewhere? I couldn’t find it on Amazon or this website
- Does the book suffice in and of itself? Can one understand the content as easily without the DVD?
- Does Dusty Strings and Laurie Riley intend to make this DVD available freely, like the Double-Strung one?
I absolutely understand that one needs to make a living and that this content does not come free of charge. However, that means the content becomes unavailable for a number of people that could benefit from it… myself included
Furthermore, if anyone has any feedback or commentary to make about this book/DVD, I would be very interested!
Thank you all,
