Alison Kinnaird - The Harp Key

Select from currently available formats:

Our first release, this recording established Alison Kinnaird as the leading exponent of the largely unexplored field of Scottish harp. Her research, teaching and the album re-established a repertoire for the instrument in Scotland. This and her subsequent recordings form a definitive and essential base to any collection of Scottish harp.


The clarsach (Scottish harp) can never have had a better show case than this
