Monday October 8th , 10:00 AM to 11:30 AMGaelic College – 51779 Cabot Trail Road, St. Ann's
Hosted by: Cape Breton Harp Circle
Harp players are invited to a participatory workshop with Ireland's Lilly Neill. While all skill levels are welcomed, the workshop is best suited for an intermediate player.
Irish Music Magazine writes of Lily's repertoire, "Lily Neill's musical compass remains eclectic. While she courts the old manuscripts and composers, her Sat Nav is placed firmly leftfield. That sphere includes plentiful original compositions which form the backbone of her live and recorded programme so far. One of the most challenging and provocative musicians of her time - Lily Neill's daredevil approach works wonders". Lily's foundation in Irish traditional music, coupled with her eclectic tastes and classical piano training, has enabled her to expand the voice of the harp through her arrangements of music and in her original compositions. Her experiences working with artists from different genres and backgrounds, from folk to classical as well as rock n' roll, have also played a major part in shaping and continuing to shape Lily's music.
