Haley Hewitt performs on the Celtic Harp in New Salem, MA on June 18 at 7:30 pm at the 1794 Meetinghouse, North Quabbin’s Performing Arts Center. Adults $10. Call 1-413-335-3489 or go to http://www.1794meetinghouse.org for more info.
Some great high energy playing here (made to look effortless of course), with some impressively subtle dance moves to go along with.
Check out Yasmeen’s YouTube channel for more.
Hey look! An electric harp performance by someone other than Deborah Henson-Conant or those creepy blond twins. If you’re not a fan of atmospheric electronica, don’t worry – some nice tight Celtic playing kicks in pretty quickly after the introduction. You can find out more about Duo Descofar via their website; they’re also on Facebook. (Main Vimeo channel here.)
More mad lever-harp skills on display. Some beautiful playing by Lina Bellard at the Concours de Harpe, Lorient.
The 2013 Earth Day (Peace Day) Harp Circle tunes are up on Chubby Sparrow. The first is a duet version of Come Give Me Your Hand, with chords and notes for lever harp. The second is a slow air based on The Bays of Harris, with lyrics modified from Robert Louis Stevenson’s poem “Evensong” (also with chords).
Everything in the “Free Music” section of the Chubby Sparrow site is free to download, print and/or listen to (please remember to include all acknowledgements and copyrights when printing). Feel free to photocopy and/or share any of the tunes (non-commercial use only please).
Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend!
O’Carolan’s Dream, played by Mark Harmer.
I’m off to play a house concert tonight, and then a relaxed ceili with musical friends next weekend. Feels good to be getting back into the Celtic zone again!
