Karen Marshalsay: Traditional Scottish Harp Music on Friday 24th May 2019

Karen Marshalsay is a master of traditional Scottish harp music. Specialising on all three Scottish harps – both gut- and wire-strung and the baroque bray harp with its buzzing sitar effect – Karen has appeared throughout the UK, Europe, America and Australia.

Career highlights include the Edinburgh International Festival, Celtic Connections, and the Australian National Folk Festival, working with African, Indian and Paraguayan musicians and on multi-cultural projects including Yatra, which premiered at the Edinburgh Mela in 2008.

With a particular interest in pipe music, Karen has played with Allan MacDonald in his acclaimed pibroch concerts, including the Edinburgh International Festival’s From Battle Lines to Bar Lines series (2004), and for the National Piping Centre’s 2013 Ceòl na Piòba concert.

As a composer, Karen has produced new works for Celtic Connections’ New Voices series, Hands up for Trad’s Distil showcase concerts, and Drake Music Scotland, and she was Composer in Residence with Harps North West in 2016.

Karen releases a new album, The Road to Kennacraig, this Spring. She also currently performs with the legendary Irish flute player, singer and founder of Boys of the Lough, Cathal McConnell’s trio.
