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!
My longtime friend and musical brother, Andy Goessling, and I have a new band and project called Sleeping Bee. Andy and I have known each other literally for decades and have long talked of doing something together. We've never been quite able to find the time to make it happen - until now. Our first recording, Heyday Maker, is out 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 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:
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
I'm looking forward to playing again with the great Muhal Richard Abrams as part of the ongoing AACM concert series here in New York on Friday, Oct. 24th. My main man, Reggie Nicholson, who played drums on my very first recording under my own name (Never No More), will be on drums. I can't wait - it's been too long. Check the calendar for details.
We had a great summer with Eileen Ivers and Immigrant Soul. From New England to Colorado, The Guinness Irish Music Festival in Switzerland to the Tonder Folk Music Festival in Tonder, Denmark and several points in between. 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 and the "blue eyed soul of Irish music", singer and percussionist, Tommy McDonnell. We've recently expanded the concept by adding drummer Dave Barckow and singer/bouzouki player/ guitarist, Alan Murray and are looking to a great run of holiday concerts culminating in no less than five shows with the San Diego Symphony. 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/
