WillowgreenWillowgreen is Sue Spencer, Georganne Hunter, Jim Ofsthun, Wendy McCorison and Mary Lou Williams. The Duluth, Minnesota based quintet has been performing and recording together since 1989. Willowgreen explores their "Celtic Roots", playing traditional and contemporary music from Ireland, Newfoundland, Scotland and other parts of the "Celtic" world along with original music written in the Celtic style.

Willowgreen formed as a trio in 1984 and became a quintet in 1989. Our performances are regional concerts and festivals, with a few private performances and benefits each year. We recorded our first album "Willowgreen" in 1990, "Winter" in 1991, "Willowgreen III" in 1993, "Inland Sea" in 1999, and "Glensheen" in 2002.

Willowgreen plays "Celtic Roots" music, which is traditional and contemporary music from Ireland, Newfoundland, Scotland and other parts of the Celtic world as well as original music written and performed in the Celtic style. We have been involved with musical styles from classical to rock to funk to folk and a bit of everything else thrown in for good measure (and fun!). There is something special - almost magical - about Celtic music that brought us together and keeps us looking for more. There are a lot of great bands in the world of Celtic music, but most of the general public doesn't get a chance to hear them unless they are tuned in to public radio and the "Irish" festival scene.

Their influences range from Celtic groups such as Capercallie, Cherish the Ladies, The Chieftains, Moving Hearts, Karen Ashbrook, Kim Robertson and Bara McNeils to the more recognizable sounds of Joni Mitchell, Stan Rogers, Bonnie Raitt, Robin and Linda Williams, etc.
