“’blooming’ affirms The Forget-Me-Nots have become exquisite, yet fervent performers.”
“’blooming’ is a bold album featuring an astounding amount of talent. Those who enjoy Celtic, folk and even classical music will have a grand appreciation for The Forget-Me-Nots. Even those who prefer more contemporary music cannot help but be impressed.”
--Ashley Wilson, The Mountain Times Online
The Forget-Me-Nots are proud to present their new CD called "blooming" featuring all original compositions! The tunes are Celtic-influenced and many seem as old as the tradition itself, yet they are brand new and as full of life, freshness, and energy as these young musicians themselves! Available locally at the Mast Store and at Appalachian Music Store.
Forget-Me-Nots bring fresh energy to the ageless tradition
of Celtic music. The band originated in 2002 but its roots
go back to 1999, when the girls started playing violin at
the tender ages of 2, 3 and 4 years old. The players are
Willa Finck, Maura Shawn Scanlin, and Ledah Finck, with David Finck on backup guitar. The
girls, classically trained through the Suzuki method, also
showed an early interest in playing old-time and Celtic
fiddle music. This interest blossomed in the fertile grounds
of the North Carolina High Country, an area steeped in
Appalachian musical traditions.
The Forget-Me-Nots have thrilled listeners at festivals,
concerts, house parties, weddings, and fund-raisers
throughout North Carolina and Tennessee. Their music ranges
from energetic reels and soulful airs to great works from
the classical repertoire.
