Keep It Simple …

During the month of December, I had the opportunity to go to Salt Lake City and see the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s Christmas production. And a production it was! They had two special guests and over-the-top theatrics. The only thing missing was the Choir actually singing Christmas carols … really!

While it was entertaining, I was disappointed to not experience the simple beauty of this timeless music by this awesome Choir. Traveling to Salt Lake City to see this Choir was on my “bucket list,” so I feel blessed to have had this experience. But it was also a reminder that simplicity is still much-needed in our culture, especially during the month of December and throughout the holiday season.

While we just finished the holidays, I am already booking Advent gigs for 2014. They will be focused on beautiful Christmas carols, meditative readings and touching stories. Contact me if you are interested in booking a holiday gig now.

Featuring “The Christmas Story”

Featuring “The Christmas Story,” this is one of my holiday CDs. Since most Christmas music is recorded in the summer (so the CDs are ready for the holidays), “The Christmas Story” has always been special because it was recorded on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

When the Daily OM wrote a review and shared it with their 1 million customers, I knew they understood the special grace of this solo harp CD.  I am deeply touched and humbled by their beautiful words…

Review by Daily OM:

“Harpist Tami Briggs is a sound healer whose angelic, gentle playing bypasses all resistance to touch the root chord of the human soul. She honed her healing skill via personal appearances at hospitals and hospices, bringing her soothing sounds right up to the beds of those most in need. Bringing her knowledge of healing into the recording studio, Briggs makes harp music that’s simple, sweet, and deeply soothing. Embracing a less-is-more strategy, The Christmas Story interprets classic holiday standards into gentle solo-harp pieces, potent enough to hush a room of chatting relatives, relaxing enough to play in a child’s bedroom to help them fall asleep on Christmas Eve. And if you should find yourself alone for the holidays, Briggs becomes an angelic friend, her music a shimmering presence rooting you back to humanity.

Capturing the vibe of a live performance, The Christmas Story offers audio quality sharp enough to give the illusion that Briggs is playing right in the same room as you mull through your presents or nap on the couch in a sea of torn wrapping paper….The CD wraps up with the feeling of belonging to something larger than oneself, as Briggs’ gentle touch with the harp suffused even her frequent impassioned glissandos with warmth. More than just a bunch of carols played on the harp, Briggs skirts in and around the familiar melodies with the finesse of a jazz soloist, albeit one with no agenda of showing off chops, but rather of hitting all the right notes to warm the back of your neck and open your heart. Put on The Christmas Story when you need a gentle reminder of what the holidays are about: peace, love, and spiritual regeneration.”
