Sharlene Wallace & Kim Robertson, acclaimed Canadian and American harpists, have just launched an exciting new CD of high-spirited and soulful duets including contemporary and traditional music from Scotland, Ireland, France, South America and Canada.
Sharlene & Kim first met at a harp retreat (Island Mountain Arts) in the Cariboo Mountains of British Columbia. Throughout the ensuing years they have crossed paths and borders to perform together at festivals and concerts in the U.S., Canada and France.
Q&A is their first CD together and celebrates their friendship and mutual enthusiasm for the Celtic harp.
Q&A is a recording of beautiful airs, frolicky jigs and reels, a spicy piece by their friend and colleague Alfredo Rolando Ortiz, and a dreamy habanera written by Sharlene.
Hello my rambling followers! Finally!!!!!!! I have a new CD to share with you. I am so excited by this collaboration with my friend Kim Robertson. What’s better than one harp?! (besides accordion, of course!) Yes… two harps!!! The title, Q&A, is named for the conversations we have talking and playing together. Kim and I have already had the privilege of performing from our CD at The Harp Gathering in Ohio and at the Celtic Roots College and Festival in Goderich this past summer. And… it is now available to you through:
CDBaby – the real thing, an actual CD!, or digital downloads
