Hosted by: Cape Breton Harp Circle
Harp players are invited to a participatory workshop with Ireland's Laoise Kelly. While all skill levels are welcomed, the workshop is best suited for intermediate players.
Irish Times stated: “Kelly virtually reinvents the instrument with her rhythmic and melodic intricacy, her syncopation and undulating chords and harmonies … she’ll have you swaying with her profound musicality”. Throughout her solo career Laoise has recorded on over 50 albums with many of Ireland’s foremost artists including The Chieftains, Sharon Shannon, John Hoban, Dónal Lunny, Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill, Tommy Makem, Matt Molloy, Mary Black, Kathleen MacInnes as well as Kate Bush and American country/bluegrass icon Tim O’Brien.
