- a medieval living history group). It was at the local SCA meetings that he, Anwyn and other local performers formed Celtic

George Leverett was born and raised in High Point, North Carolina. George began playing guitar at the age of 15, and used
that as a foundation to learn other instruments. Although proficient on several stringed instruments, it wasn't until
his early 20's that he found his true musical love: the Celtic harp.
George feels most at home in natural settings, and it is
there that he feels the presence of divinity the strongest. He uses music as an outlet to express this connection. No
other intrument conveys this sense of magic and haunting beauty better than Celtic harp.
George's musical influences run a wide
range of styles and composers: including Sileas (celtic harpers), Emily Mitchell (harpist), Burt Baccarach (1960's songwriter), the
Mediaevel Baebes, the Doors (rock), and a variety of classical and folk artists.
