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

Your muse is walking the plank.

There is your next album cover right there

Sound with the hound.

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

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

Archie looks like a Jack Russell Terrier

😍

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

Always love listening this song as it is relaxing

You were the reason I began to love this country, the people and now the language. I saw you when I was young and I was amazed. I bought the CD and I started learning about your beautiful country. Now I speak a little just to feel Norwegian and I am still trying to. I visited once Oslo and I will come again. Thank you. Gratulerer!

So much better & a class above more recent entries or winners. Maybe SG should try again?

One of my favorites!

Inspiration and determination brought forth the serenity of Norway and the splendor of natural Ireland from the hearts, hands, and heads of the living duo, Secret Garden. I married Eva, from Oslo in the 1990s, when already well acquainted with Celtic tunes, and symphonic themes, then found her personally elusive from grasping and kindly gentle manner in SG's joined sound entering into our personal space: as was played daily for a long newlywed season. A mysteriuos sense of freshness never left us. Listening together increased bonds and attuned careful and pleasant life discoveries over our years together since coupling. We were with your US tour Denver Concert just a few rows from the stage, along with our Japanese graduate student friend (who ended up in Austrialia) and bonded for the out of body experience there, riveted, amazed. Then it was face to face with you after performing with all you had, awed at both personally signing the in conert VHS... You're moving on and on timelessly through our family humanity and days like Randall Jarrell's Orient Express poem surveying nations, going west to east over the crossed centuries of your reciprocity: gift giving musical feats. Gracious thanks.

IMPORTANT I am writing here because sadly contact page is not working. Hopefully you will see my review soon. Dear Secret Garden a customer of mine (and me too) is baffled when he heard some of your masterpieces. We are really fond of your works. Besides being fascinated by your work, we want your copyright permission to use some of them in his own album. Surely we can come to an agreement as soon as possible. Kind regards.

I have all of your albums and your video about your musical program at Kilden. After watching your video, which I very much enjoyed, I was most disappointed that your Kilden video program omitted "You Raise Me Up". That song has been a favorite of mine from the moment I first heard it on your earliest album. I was so surprised to see it omitted from your show. And your book titled the same just adds to my curiosity. Was there a legal reason that song or its performers could not be featured in your video? I think of it so linked to your group. Thank you for all of your exceptional musical contributions. Keep it up with Heaven's blessings. Best to you all...

Your ethereally atmospheric music is ideally suited to cover a song that has haunted my memory since I first heard it more than half a century ago. "After The Snow" was written by the late Stephen Scotti for his wife, folk singer Dayle Stanley, on the eve of the birth of their first child, and is the title song of her second album. Within a very short time, it was covered by Canadian folk singer Bonnie Dobson on her album 'For The Love Of Him'. Links below for the original Dayle Stanley recording, along with the Bonnie Dobson cover. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9lvlX-0jTI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWKG4wKAYzw
