SECRET GARDEN CANCELS ALL CONCERTS FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR

Dear Friends,

Unfortunately, life can get in the way of the best-made plans and so, after planning an extensive tour of China this fall as well as planned concerts in Norway, Australia, and Korea to celebrate our latest album “Storyteller", Fionnuala was unfortunately diagnosed with breast cancer.

After two rounds of surgery, she has now started radiation treatment as well as infusion therapy. Her medical team has advised her to concentrate on her health situation, so subsequently, we have decided to postpone all concert plans until Fionnuala’s treatment is over.

We hope to be rescheduling all touring plans in mid-2020. We had been very much looking forward to performing the music from our new album “Storyteller” and it saddens us very much that we have to postpone for the moment.

In Fionnula’s own words:
“Even though it’s scary to get such a diagnosis, I am also very grateful that we had recorded and released our new CD. The response so far has been fantastic and I really am very thankful for all the positivity & support we have received”

"This will be a challenging time ahead - but knowing that we will be back performing as soon as possible will give me the drive and support to see the treatment through.”

We want to thank you all for your continued support and meanwhile, hope you enjoy “Storyteller” as our story continues to unfold.

Love,
Fionnuala and Rolf

Fionnuala, you are loved so much! I am a 1 year Breast Cancer Survivor! Your music got me through some pretty tough times last year. I will be thinking of you and sending lots of love your way!! You can do this!!!

May your very own music be a healing source as it has been for others. I have a friend who is a beautiful singer who had to have throat surgery so I bought her “inside I’m Singing” she said it was got her through a very difficult time of her life.

Sending a truckload of healing love:

Your muse is walking the plank.

There is your next album cover right there

Aw so cute! When will we get a song named for him? 😉

Sound with the hound.

Maybe he’ll give you a tune that will become your next hit!

😍

"Musique pour les chiens"? Music for dogs? :D

Archie looks like a Jack Russell Terrier

Thank you so much Fionnuala, for your lovely music - you and Rolf are a uniquely talented combination. Only discovered you very recently - and thoroughly enjoyed your Lillehammer concert from 20 years ago (on YouTube.) Storyteller is also a wonderfully chilled-out album, and is perfect company on the road. I was very saddened to hear about your cancer, but thankful that you are pulling through. Rest well, and may God grant you a full recovery! Hope you visit the UK in the not-too-distant future. It would be such a pleasure to experience you guys live! Take care.

Wishing you well Fionnuala. Your music has been so inspirational to me as I have worked my own way through a debilitating illness over the years. You have also inspired my violin playing too - I have spent many hours playing your wonderful music. To you both - thank you.

sorry - but I've never heard of you until 3 days ago. I'm sharing here a whatsapp message that I wrote to my girlfriend a few days ago - untouched (a word by word, and rarely I write her in English). So just before I paste it - best wishes for health and getting well soon. May the endeavor you face now take you and your music to new heights. The whatsapp I wrote to my love is untouched below: Here's the story: I'm working... and hearing music. Kind of in the background. So, I'm kind of blind (should I say deaf?) to it. But the music is THERE. And my senses, are not totally oblivious to it. And then, there's a piece... which takes me over. Have we ever dreamed of a *secret garden* that'll be the place for *just the two of us*?
