Brahm Stuart & Catalina Colibri
     Born in Panama, raised in New Orleans and Mississippi, B. Stuart mastered the Celtic fiddle the old way, in the pubs and forests of Ireland, from both human and elven masters. Since the mid eighties Brahm has been based in the New York area. In the nineties, he led Celtic-Folk/Earth-Music group, SHAMAN, that recorded 5 albums and played at many venues including the United Nations, Starwood music festival, Earth Day and Renaissance Festivals, political rallies, benefits and witches balls. Other credits include many on-stage performances alongside many great musicians including Rick Danko, Jorma Kaukonen, Paul Winter, Glen Velez, The Wolftones and Alan Stivell. He was an original member of the Celtic rock band, The Clan, and performed with the Italian folk music group, I Guillari di Piazza for over 12 years. A master performer on accoustic guitar, fiddle, voice, percussion and tin whistle in several folk traditions. At present, Brahm and Catalina (harp, energy and percussion) are the core members of the Mystic Minstrels.
     Born and raised in New York City, Catalina is a third generation musician; her father was the principal timbales player in the world famous bolero/salsa group, Trio de San Juan. She started playing guitar and percussion from an early age, and later fell in love with Irish mythology and Celtic harp which she studied beginning in the mid nineties. She has now been playing Celtic harp professionally for over 10 years, both with the Minstrels and as a solo harpist. On percussion, Catalina plays bodhran (Irish framedrum) and Middle Eastern framedrum and is quite accomplished in authentic Italian tambourine styles as well. Catalina has performed at many prestigious events, galas and weddings with performances at the Cloisters Museum in New York City, Caramoor Center for Music Arts in Katonah, NY, Metropolitan Museum, The University Club and Gracie Mansion in New York City. Catalina has recorded two solo harp albums, Mystical Journey and The Trees of Pan on the Solstar Communications label.

Laura’s long-time fascination with Celtic mythology led her to create the “Legends of the Goddess” trilogy (Legends of the Goddess, Beyond the Pale: Legends of the Goddess II, and Trilogy: Legends of the Goddess III) which features musical themes based on the Celtic goddess of ancient myth. Enhanced by instrumentation such as tin whistle, uilleann pipes and Irish flute, the influence of European pop can be heard throughout the records and lyrically, it is the metaphysical/mythological aspect of Celtic legends that is the central focus. In addition, Powers utilized her gifts as a painter to create the original cover art on all three CDs, melding the lyrical imagery with her oil paintings to present a timeless collection of music and art.

Our introduction song 'Take Me Down Where the Pagans Go' is by Adala:
New episodes to come. Stay tuned!
