The Shores of Lillisand
Steve Schuch & The Night Heron Consort
Soaring melodies and countermelodies, innovative rhythmic arrangements, performed on over 30 different instruments... these are the hallmarks of the Night Heron Consort. Critics have compared their sound to Riverdance and the Chieftains, with hints of Handel and Van Halen.
