Sheet Music Store

This week I launched a new sheet music store on Etsy! Following the Huron Harp Festival, I received a few specific requests for sheet music, so I have made those pieces available here: www.ellengiblingharp.etsy.com

So far, only Duine Air Call and Garden River are for sale, but I'll continue to add arrangements as requests come in. The arrangements are for solo harp, written just as I would play them in performance. However, I'm working on some more pedagogical material... stay tuned!

Bombadils and Magpies

The Bombadils shared a bill at the Carleton last week with a lovely band from the UK - The Magpies! This has been an exciting time for the Bombadils, as they just won Americana/Bluegrass Recording of the year from Music Nova Scotia and have been nominated in three categories at the Canadian Folk Music Awards: Vocal Group of the Year, Ensemble of the Year, and Single of the Year (for Tell Me I'm Not Dreaming).

Elizabeth Fry Society Gala

I recently was introduced to the work of the Elizabeth Fry Society through playing at their fundraising gala. I was very impressed by the scope of the programs they run, and the amazing team of staff with lived experience who are doing important work on the ground! Check out their website to learn more about them and donate if you are able. Thanks to Seymour Snaps for this photograph!
