Seasons is comprised of siblings Mary-Kate Spring, Peter Winter, Mary-Teresa Summer, Mary-Grace Autumn, and Mary-Clare Chun Lee. With a sound centered around the Celtic harp and the hammered dulcimer, but also incorporating instruments as diverse as the violin, mandolin, bodrhan, penny whistle, guitar and piano, Seasons creates an exciting and surprising fusion of Celtic, folk, original, and popular music, resulting in a sound that is truly unique.
Seasons has recorded multiple CDs, "Eventide Lullabye" (2006) and "Which Way to Dublin Town" (2009), and also collaborated with Mary-Kate on her solo album "Mirabilis" (2010). In March of 2012, Seasons released "Amhrain," a collection of traditional and original Irish Aires. These albums have received national recognition in publications such as Musicmaker's Magazine, Catholic Digest, Christianity Today, and Grapevine Online, and also have been played on regional and national radio.
Their song "The Helmsman," based on a poem by St. Faustina, was selected as one of the songs on the highly anticipated audio recording of St. Faustina's Diary (published by Marian Press).
Seasons has performed multiple times on television, including EWTN shows Life on the Rock and Dana and Friends as well as on Fox and Friends the early show for Fox News.
Seasons has performed in multiple states and countries and has opened for Grammy award-winner Ashley Cleveland, the Celtic-rock band Scythian and Celtic Fiddle Festival. From the Hilton Hotel to the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire, the JP II Cultural Center to a school assembly, EWTN to Six Flags Great Adventure, Seasons strives to share their musical gifts where ever they can. Their set lists are as eclectic as their different musical tastes, featuring Celtic music, original songs, and covers that you would never expect to hear on harp and hammered dulcimer, all arranged by the band and infused with an infectious energy that has audiences clapping along.
