Lisa Thiel’s music first gained its notoriety in the typical grassroots folk tradition: through people singing and playing her songs as they traveled across the country and around the world.

Her music reached such distant places as China, Australia, the U.K., and Europe in this manner, and her first release, “Songs of the Spirit” became an underground classic as a result.

Her 1997 release “Invocation of the Graces,”¬†and her last CD, “Circle of the Seasons” in 2005, reflects her return to her own Celtic roots and the magic of its ancient folk musical traditions.
