Halifax Institute of Traditional and Early Music

This afternoon, I was a guest with the Trad Ensemble at the Halifax Institute of Traditional and Early Music. It was a great group of musicians, and I had so much fun sharing some tunes with them!

Family Discovery Concert Series

The Maritime Conservatory has started a free concert series featuring faculty members of the school, the "Family Discovery Concert Series". On Sunday, Kathleen Doherty and I had a blast performing in the first one, presenting harp and dance renditions of some Irish airs. There will be two more performances in the series this year: April 3, and May 1, both at 2pm in the Concert Hall.

On March 4th, I'm looking forward to holding an album release show at the Bus Stop Theatre! I'll be playing through some solo pieces from the album as well as playing tunes with a few special guests.

Capacity is very limited, and the show is sold out. If you'd like to add your name to the waiting list, you can do so here, and I'll notify you if a spot opens up or if capacity changes.

Album pre-orders open!

On March 4th, I'll be releasing a new album of solo harp music, "The Bend in the Light"! The album includes some Irish traditional tunes and some original compositions, but is mostly comprised of newly written tunes by musicians I've encountered through playing Irish traditional music. Pre-orders are now possible on bandcamp, where you can listen to a preview track - a set of hopjigs. I'm so excited to share this music!

Northern Journey / Dawn Dance

Today, I'm delighted to release this video of two beautiful new tunes by Olivia Barrett - Northern Journey and Dawn Dance. The video was created by the wonderful Melanie Stone and was shot on a summer's day on the South Shore of Nova Scotia.
