Margaret DavisMargaret Davis is a singer, Celtic harper, and flutist who has dedicated her life to performing original arrangements of Celtic and Medieval music. With a degree in Music and graduate studies in Medieval French and Provençal, she combines academic knowledge with a deep love and understanding of the language and music of the troubadours. Margaret also creates her own interpretations of the Celtic music of her Scottish heritage, melding Celtic and Medieval together in concert to forge a beautiful new musical blend.

Known primarily for her beautiful crystal-clear vocals, Margaret is also part of the new generation of folk harp players dedicated to recreating the ancient sounds of Celtic and Medieval harp music. Classically trained on flute and recorder as well, Margaret adds the haunting voices of these instruments to the evocative music of her harp and song. Margaret has been performing since 1986 as a soloist, in the duo Margaret & Kristoph, as lead singer of Celtic/Renaissance band Brocelïande and as one of the leaders of Celtic rock band Avalon Rising. She has performed internationally at festivals, clubs, universities, conventions, and live on radio. She has recorded 10 CDs on the Flowinglass Music label; her music has also been featured on educational CD-ROMS, on computer games, in videos, and is widely broadcast on traditional and Internet radio stations. Her Medieval and Celtic songs have charted in the top 10 in the Medieval and Celtic genres at mp3.com.
