Island Mountain is an eleven minute CD featuring Sharlene’s Island Mountain Suite. This suite, originally written for two harps was commissioned by Island Mountain Arts of Wells, British Columbia for the turn of the millennium. The Suite reflects the stunning landscape and history of the Cariboo Mountains from the ever changing cloud shadows, to the Cariboo Wagon Road travelled in the 19th century by thousands of gold prospectors, to the Jack o’ Clubs Lake that lies quietly at the foot of Wells.
There is also a bonus track on this album of Alfredo Rolando Ortiz’s Merengue Rojo with Sharlene on harp and Sal Ferreras on percussion.
