Laughter releases healing hormones!

Hear Mairéid's Kookaburra laugh:
From 1995 launch of various chapters
the International Laughing Club.

“When you listen to Mairéid sing, you get the feeling that she dips into the well,
as it were, to bring you back clear water. You take this gift and feel refreshed.
There’s no doubt that the well she goes to lies deep within the Celtic lands,
where she was born. The voice of ages comes to you, through her; pure and honest,
adorned with her own distinctive timbre and delivery.
It must have been, one day, on her way to that secret well
that she met her magical accompanist, the guitarist Ben Kettlewell,
a fellow traveller, also imbibing from the source. A man with musicality in his very blood,
Ben Kettlewell plays with great sensitivity and brings an almost devotional quality to his accompaniments."
Saul Roche, Irish Australian writer, songwriter/poet, and musician

"A coming together - a sharing from the heart."
Bobby Bunningurr, Elder of the Maliburr tribe, Arnhem Land, Northern Territory, Australia

"Maireid Sullivan is a poet and her voice is magic."
Marilyn Ferguson, Brain/Mind Bulletin, California
(Author of the Aquarian Conspiracy)
