About

Meet Oona, a creator of song and story, a vocalist, a community-builder, a Celtic harpist and pianist, a teacher, a garden-tender, a curator of joy…

Welcome.  I am grateful you are here. If there is one thing I have learned from swimming with wild dolphins, it is that this is it. Breath, body, longing, love – this moment is our life. I invite you to take a moment to:

as we awaken, renew, and celebrate the gift of being alive.

My Path

Through words and music, I bring the wild magic of the earth into form. Part bard, part social changer, for over 20 years I have played music, told stories, and facilitated workshops around the globe. From Transitions – a play and interactive workshop promoting tolerance and building bridges between refugee and non-refugee youth – to my transformative project One World, One Heart Beating, launched from Zimbabwe to give voice to children the world over, my life-long commitment is to use my creativity to open hearts, inspire wonder, cultivate hope, and preserve our precious planet. Much of my work involves empowering youth. Programs I have developed, like Enchanted Ecology, inspire them to connect with the natural world and believe they can make a difference.

Most recently, I am slightly obsessed with:

Performer, musician, writer, creator, earth steward, educator, transformer … Regardless of my role, my passion rests in spreading love, affirming peace, and cultivating beauty.
