Welcome to the website of Lindsey Horner, I hope you enjoy your visit. To hear musical samples from many of my recordings, please stop by the store!
On March 29th, I will prove that you CAN go home again as I will be playing with the great Myra Melford at The Stone here in New York. Myra is doing a retrospective of her work all week from March 24th through the 29th, culminating in this reunion with the original trio of Myra, Reggie Nicholson and myself. Myra is a key person in my musical life and the trio that started off back in 1990 was the start of many beautiful things for us all.

Sleeping Bee was in the studio in February putting down a few tunes featuring Timothy Hill. While we are very happy with the first recording, Heyday Maker, it has been out for two years already this month (!) and it precedes Timothy's joining the band. We're thinking of making a "work in progress" EP type of thing on the way to a recording later this year of some of the exciting new material we've been playing. We're also looking ahead to playing at the Songbox in Seaford, LI on April 25th, a short tour in Vermont from April 30th to May 3rd, John Platt's On the Radar show on WFUV on May 12th and even a brief sojourn down south to Virginia and North Carolina at the end of May. Check out the Calendar section for more details.
Sleeping Bee is the brainchild of my longtime musical brother, Andy Goessling, and myself. The Band can best be described as "Transcendent Acoustic ", and it seems to be growing each time we play together. Our first recording, Heyday Maker, has been out for awhile and to be honest, we are quite pleased with it. We did most of the work at Randy Crafton's excellent Kaleidoscope Sound and Randy also lent his considerable percussion artistry to the proceedings. We have been rehearsing new material and have expanded the concept by adding the singer and guitarist Timothy Hill to the band. I have known Timothy for many years and have longed to make more music with him. He specializes in harmonic singing whereby two or more notes can be sung at once - as well as the more conventional kind of singing.
As some may know, Andy has been a member of the genre-crossing band Railroad Earth since its inception and the record continues to be on sale at all Railroad Earth shows. It is also available through this site - go to the store to view, listen and purchase - and also at CD Baby: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/sleepingbeelindseyhorner
As you can see above, there is a special section on this website dedicated to all things Sleeping Bee.
Here's a look at the cover art:
We had a great run of March gigs with Eileen Ivers and Immigrant Soul. We were in Minneapolis and the North Texas Irish Festival outside Dallas as well as some New England shows that took us to one of my favorite venues, The Flynn Theater in Burlington, Vermont. The sold-out crowd there made us fell very welcome indeed. I'm thrilled to be a part of this great band which also features guitarist Greg Anderson, three time All-Ireland champion button accordion player, Buddy Connolly, singer and percussionist, Dave Barckow and the "blue eyed soul of Irish music", singer and percussionist, Tommy McDonnell. I've yet to do a gig with Eileen and the lads where the audience was not on their feet raving at the end. For more information on the band and touring schedule, go to http://www.eileenivers.com/
