Ann, from Minnesota, is recognised as the foremost exponent of the wire-strung harp in the world. The wire-strung harp, or clarsach, was the harp of the Gaels of Ireland and Scotland. Through her knowledge of traditional music from her Irish American family background, and her study of the surviving music and manuscripts, Ann has re-invented the techniques necessary to play this majestic instrument.

"Demonstrates that in her command of the metal-strung harp, she really is in a league of her own." (THE SCOTSMAN)

"An album to be treasured as much for its versatility as for its artistry." (JOHN O'REGAN, ROCK N' REEL)

"It's a stunningly beautiful collection of music." (ALYTH EVANS, TAPLAS)
