Welcome to the Flowinglass Music website! Oakland-based independent record label, music production company, and recording studio Flowinglass Music was founded in 1993 by husband and wife musical team Margaret Davis and Kristoph Klover. Flowinglass Music publishes the works of Celtic rock band Avalon Rising, Celtic/Early Music group Broceliande, Celtic duo Margaret & Kristoph, and singer/harper Margaret Davis.
Recordings on the Flowinglass Music label are widely available through such outlets as iTunes, CDBaby, and Amazon, and our catalog was recently picked up for distribution by Sugo Music. Our music has been widely featured on Internet and traditional radio stations, newspapers, and magazines.
One of our best-selling titles, The Starlit Jewel, features songs from the writings of Tolkien, and is one of the very few recorded settings of Tolkien's poems to be officially authorized by the Estate and publisher of J.R.R. Tolkien.
Music by our Celtic rock band Avalon Rising has been featured in movies and television, including the movie Cost of a Soul, and commercials for the Boston Globe, and was included in The Secret World of Celtic Rock (Celtic MP3s Music Magazine) and The Best of Pagan Song (Serpentine Music).
The recordings by Celtic/Early Music group Broceliande have received wide international acclaim and have been featured in the movie To The Sea. Members of Broceliande were featured in the Disney movie Bedtime Stories starring Adam Sandler.
