Celtic Harp and Song Workshop

Celtic Harp and Song Workshop Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

We'll cover all your favorite aspects of singing with the instrument from arrangements to song choice. Singing with the harp, or accompanying yourself singing is very different from playing solo pieces or from accompanying other musicians or singers.


Naturally it calls for a different approach. This workshop will serve to look at the unique aspects of self accompaniment and keeping it simple.


We'll focus on old beautiful airs from the tradition that are very suitable for meditative music. Interestingly many of them were written on or widely played by the harpers of old.


We'll also touch on combining your personal meditation practice and how to carry that forward into playing for others.


This workshop is also suitable for healing practitioners who play at the bedside.


If there's any more beautiful music in the world than Irish and Celtic airs, I've yet to hear it. We'll dig into the deepest treasures of the tradition by unearthing Ireland and Scotland's most beautiful airs. For me, there's no greater joy than playing airs that were written for the harp, often by harpers and I can't wait to share that with you!


This is the music a harpist can really make his or her own through self-expression and it's the best way I know to find your true harp "voice."
