Friday Music: Echo of Delphi Valley

This song comes with a story from more than a decade ago. Here is a link to a blog post we did in 2009 that tells how we first discovered the music of Peppino D'Agostino. We hope you enjoy both, the story and the song. If you do follow the link you'll notice there are no comments on that post. Back in the day we used Haloscan for comments. They discontinued their service, and we lost all the comments from the first five years of blogging.

  1. Beautiful. Sounds like the stuff I listened to in my Rajneesh-hippy days. Very meditative and soothing. Thanks.

    1. Dr Michelle-- We love meditative music. Our go-to dinner music is The Chakra Suite by Steve Halpern. Glad you like this.

  2. Exquisite! I'd seen the name before but don't think I'd ever really listened to his music - something I shall rectify this evening.

  3. Lovely music. We are very attached to another Delphie Valley, most likely not the one that inspired this music. It's in the West of Ireland, linking the village of Delphie with the town of Louisburgh.

  4. Loved the music. I feel like I've heard it in a bookstore in Santa Cruz once but I could be mistaken.

    So sad you lost all your old blog responses. I like to go back once in awhile and revisit here and there.

    1. Linda-- Now I'm wondering wwhat bookstore you were in in Santa Cruz. Roger and I lived in Santa Cruz for many, many years. It really is a loss to not have those old comments. Some of the old bloggers from back in the day who are already long gone.

  5. Beautiful music today. I think comments are a really important part of bogging, especially those which are more than just "yes messages."

  6. Ahh you have done it again and made me nice and mellow. Thank you.
    That was a shame about your comments. I started following you around 2009 but think it was later in the year. So poignant about that rose.

    1. Patti-- Ah, nice and mellow in these times is really what it's all about.
      Yes, we were so disappointed when Haloscan gave up managing comments. Back in the day there were so many bloggers and commenters. Some we don't even remember anymore. Long gone.

    2. Patti-- I meant to add that the rose photo always tugs at my heart.

  7. That's lovely. Reminds me of the type of music I'd listen to back when I was smoking weed!

    1. Catalyst-- It does have a mellow, pot-smoking sound to it!

  8. Maybe I heard this evocative music in that Santa Cruz bookstore, too. I can see the bookstore in my mind. Near The Catalyst? It brings back a time and a place most vividly.

    1. am-- I'm trying to remember the bookstores on the Santa Cruz downtown "mall." Of course the one that comes to mind is Bookshop Santa Cruz, but it's not by the Catalyst. Mmm.

  9. I really enjoyed this selection by Peppino D'Agostino, and so i had to check online and glad to learn he is still living. I also read the previous post, so thanks for the back link. Another New Age guitarist I enjoy, who you may or may not as well, is Govi.

  10. Forgot to mention a couple of other favorites, Hillary Stagg, Keiko Matsui, which we have listened to both at dinner and bedtime.
