Hilary Stagg: A Tribute



 
When you listen to his work, it seems inconceivable that Hilary Stagg's musical journey was relatively brief.  With fan mail pouring in regularly from a devoted following, many describing their healing experiences with the music, it's clear that Hilary's unique sound has a profound effect upon people no matter what their musical tastes may be.  And that is his gift that keeps on giving, even today, long after his passing and his inability to self promote his music.  We hope that this sampling will pique an interest in you the reader to explore his music and give it flight.

Description Extended Information
 
Hilary Stagg died suddenly after a brief illness but his music is our gift, ready to comfort and uplift at the touch of a button. With only a high school band sousaphone background, Hilary Stagg (named for Sir Edmund Hillary, the famous mountaineer) was an electrician when in his mid-twenties he attended an Andreas Vollenweider concert. He was enthralled, and so inspired that he purchased a small harp. It was a delightful challenge for him to use his knowledge as an electrician in amplifying the instrument and his custom amplification was superb. He tried formal lessons but quickly decided he would learn to play the harp a different way.

Hilary believed in and practiced lucid dreaming and developed a way of dancing with the Muse in his dreams, a way of exploring and composing music in his "sleep" that became the core of his compositions. As he experimented, Hilary developed a gentle, yet powerful, melodic style that gave new meaning to soothing and relaxing music. He began performing regularly, refining his technique and confidence. The results of his labor and dedication can be heard on seven titles for Real Music, Beyond the Horizon, Feather Light, Dream Spiral, The Edge of Forever, Winter Magic (Christmas selections), Sweet Return and finally, Hilary Stagg ~ A Tribute.
