EIRA LYNN JONES & GUEST HARPISTS: The Invisible Wire
A concert tracing the links between harpist, composer and harp maker, with the clarsach and pedal harp side by side connected by an invisible wire.
Eira will introduce three premieres: ‘Knocking’ (clarsach) by Anna Appleby , ‘Time Spinner’ (pedal harp) by Esther Swift, and ‘The Invisible Wire’ (clarsach duo) by Charlotte Petersen. There will be works by Grandjany, Salzedo, Andrès, Eddie McGuire ...and more! For the finale, Eira will be joined by selected young harpists who will showcase the fabulous pedal harps made by our harp makers. A feast for the eyes and the earsThis concert is dedicated to the memory of Helen MacLeod
