The Cry of the Harp: A Harper's Tour of Scotland

 —  —

2021 BEMF Fringe Concert - Online Link

A collage of early music for harp and voice from Gaelic Scotland, recreating the 17th-century world of the historic harper-bards. Rarely heard intimate chamber pieces from a Hebridean harp manuscript, stately formal laments commemorating great clan chieftains, poetic and musical invocations of the famed Keppoch murders, and more. Come hear the evocative sound of the early Gaelic wire harp coupled brilliantly with the ancient beauty of Gaelic poetry.
