Thread Name: Who are your favorite harpists?
Subject: RE: Who are your favorite harpists?
One thing I really liked about Maire Ni Cathasaigh was not only her skill at Irish playing but the way she could use the harp in (using what I think they described them as) swing jazz numbers. Seems to me to be exceptionally versatile and when I saw her play I couldn't believe the way she moved the levers to change the semitones in the jazzy ones.
