‘Oran Mor’ is a Scots-Gaelic term that refers to a “Great Melody” woven throughout Celtic mythology – an ancestral song that echoes in the present for all who listen for it. Musicians include Tom Cochran (guitar/vocals), Karen Mills-Cochran (guitar/recorders/vocals), Jonathan Satz (bass/vocals), and Bobby Campbell (flute/sax/percussion/vocals). With tunes that feature both modern and traditional instruments, along with exquisite vocal harmonies, Oran Mor’s music transports listeners to distant shores, telling tales of exotic cultures and beguiling journeys.
