Katie Waldren & Candace Kreitlow, as the duo Heartwood, create elegant, energetic music with a myriad of instruments including the Celtic harp, lap & hammered dulcimer, guitar, fiddle and an exceptional blend of voices. Both Candace & Katie are seasoned musicians and recording artists with years of experience. Heartwood's repertoire includes traditional and contemporary American and British Isles folk music, as well an abundance of original material, all displaying a strong Celtic /Appalachian flair. Though folk in nature, Heartwood's music has a classic and elegant sound. They have produced four recordings together; Waterdance, Heartwood, Night Dancer, and Babes In The Wood. They are included in Narada's collection of international harpists CD entitled Faces of the Harp. In addition, Candace has recorded Parent's Choice award winning recordings with her daughter Holly Brook as the duo, Generations and Katie has authored three dulcimer instructional books and teaches workshops throughout the country. The Heartwood duo is a favorite headliner at such events.
