NIGEL SHAW & CAROLYN HILLYER

We welcome you to the hearth fire of our Dartmoor roundhouse and to the Seventh Wave Music website. We are musicians and artists who live and work amid heather hills and moors, upland streams and misted valleys. We create music albums and concerts, paintings and prints, traditional flutes and drums, books, women’s workshop journeys, instrument making weekends, gentle festivals and wild sanctuary on our ancient farm. Here beside our hearth stones you can listen to audio samples from our CDs and downloads, find out about workshops, explore the archive of images from past projects and events, or wander around our recent releases and publications. Enjoy your visit!

These songs honour the Earth, the prayer of the Earth and the dream of the prayer. There are more words and images from the journey on the women's workshops page, including a short film from the mountain ceremony that was created. Read More >>>
