Some lovely playing here:
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.
Performed by Tyné & Katie, Dec 30, 2013. You can see more videos by harpist/singer Tyné Angela on her YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/TyneAngela
Sarah Deere-Jones, playing a duet for wind and Celtic Harp. Recorded at Castlerigg Stone Circle, Cumbria.
Alisa Sadikova, at the Rimsky-Korsakov St. Petersburg State Conservatory Music
School. There’s some debate as to the actual title and composer of this piece in the YouTube comments, but consensus seems to say that it’s “La Source” by Albert Zabel (rather than The Fountain by Grandjany). Truly impressive playing either way. Hopefully young Alisa gets to have some ordinary kid time in between all the crazy hours she must be practicing. She certainly seems to be playing with her whole heart on this one.
More mad lever-harp skills on display. Some beautiful playing by Lina Bellard at the Concours de Harpe, Lorient.
