Tremenheere Gallery, Penzance – Harpland – with Graham Fitkin
We are delighted to be invited to return to the amazing Tremenheere Gardens to perform. Over the last year I have been exploring the theme of Migration in its many forms. Graham Fitkin has composed new works based on old Gaelic songs and tunes from bagpipe and fiddle books for my three harps – the buzzing Renaissance bray harp, the beautiful medieval Gaelic wire harp (clàrsach) and the Scottish lever harp. The ancient music is re-imagined in looping, evolving patterns. We introduce the evening and talks about the stories of migration connected to the music, as well as performing a couple of body percussion pieces.
