Alison Kinnaird & Ann Heymann
The Harper's Land: Music for the Irish & Scottish Harps
[COMD2012] - Out Of Stock
Alison Kinnaird is already well known, and in Ann Heymann we have a virtuoso second to none on the wire strung harp. Again, Temple produces a first. This was the first record to combine the sounds of the gut and the wire strung harps. This album is a record of two different, but related, small harps. The approach to the music, and the harps on which it is played, has been formed by years of research in both Scotland and Ireland. The music itself has been gleaned from many sources, including the oral tradition, ancient archives and collections, and also includes original compositions by Ann Heymann and Alison Kinnaird, the harpers.
