This lucky chime is tuned to the notes of "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling." Tuned to the opening notes of the light-hearted song, "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling", this wind chime is a tribute to Ireland. Its lyrics were written by Chauncey Olcott and George Graff, Jr., set to music by Ernest Ball and first published in 1912. The song has been recorded by many famous singers, including Bing Crosby, Connie Francis and Roger Whittaker. This windchime's handsome sandblasted green tubes are further adorned by the shamrock which decorates the windcatcher. Our Woodstock Chimes of Ireland may not be rare like a four-leaf clover. Even so, may its bright tones bring the luck of the Irish to your home and garden. In 1979, Grammy Award-winning musician and instrument designer Garry Kvistad created the first Woodstock Chime from an aluminum lawn chair he found in a landfill. Fascinated by the Scale of Olympos, a 7th century pentatonic scale that can’t be played on a modern piano, Garry cut and tuned the lawn chair tubes to the exact frequency of the ancient scale. The resulting Chimes of Olympos was the first Woodstock Chime and is still one of our best selling, musically-tuned windchimes. Garry and his wife Diane still develop the chimes today as part of their family-owned business in New York’s Hudson Valley. Woodstock Chimes - The World's Favorite Windchime.
