President Obama-Concert with Irish tenor David O’Leary

David and I played by invitation for President Obama, Speaker Boehner and Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny.  I wish I could start everyday with Pipes and Drums? David and I played a short program with Irish Eyes are Smiling, Danny Boy and the Lepreachan. David has one of the rare soaring voices and playing with him felt like being on a cloud (ok, I am harpist so I can use an angel metaphor!).

We got great coverage from the LA Times to the Huffington Post

Africa by Toto on Harp

I had a request for Africa by Toto. In spite of myself I became a little obsessed. So here is a video of my arrangement for harp from my low tech small Brooklyn apt.

Electric Harp in New York City – Soundscapes, Rock and Avant Garde Sounds

Experience a true electric solid body harp with everything that turns back ground music into a Soundscape straight out of Alice in Wonderland.

I have all analog effects, a wonderful purple CAMAC harp with a matching purple sparkle Ampeg amplifier and the knowledge and attitude to make your event, concert or opening stand out.

The musician I work with are all amazing artists-not cookie cutter background music performers.

Here are some examples from youtube

Soundscape for Wave Hill Botanical Garden Oct 26 & 27 12-1:30

I am so excited to be playing with Brandee Younger and the NYC Harp Orchestra on Saturday and Sunday. We are playing traditional Irish tunes, a improvisational sound piece and of course Brandee will be playing adding a jazz solo! It is free and not to be missed.

Here is the link with all the info-

It is FREE and there will be supplies for kids (and adults) to make fairy wands and fairy castles!


A Fairy Harpist!

Sirens in Surround Sound-an acoustic evening Nov 26 7pm 2012

In this concert Susan Allen, Michael Evans, Masami Tomihisa and I will take the road less traveled and surround our audience with the pure unamplfied tones of 2 Harps, 2 Marimbas and a prepared Celeste. I truly cannot wait to play this one in this amazing space.

My teacher, mentor and friend (and one of the best gosh darn harpists in the world) Susan Allen is flying in for a rare NYC appearance. After we break the ice with a few composed works we will see exactly what mentor, student and musical friends have to say to each other.

Here is the more official write up on Facebook-
