Meaning "soul friend" in the original Celtic. Piano music written to accompany my sister Victoria's arrival in the wedding hall.

The wedding was held in a beautiful hotel in Scotland, the hall was lit with candles and the bride arrived as the sun was setting. We had the track Arrival playing while guests were seated and this set the tone for the ceremony.
I remember asking my father to measure the length of the hall and pacing it out to work out how long the piece should be. The intent was to create something that was instantly recognizeable, simple and beautiful. Written in 6/8, it has that lilting triplet feel that always reminds me of Scotland and my Celtic heritage.
It all worked perfectly and they're still married 9 years later with two wonderful kids! Feel free to use the Anam Cara, if you would like music written specifically for you, please contact me.
