Thread Name: Who are your favorite harpists?
Subject: RE: Who are your favorite harpists?
Nice to see this thread revived. My vote still goes to Sileas, Patsy Seddon and Mary McMaster, who are/were also part of The Poozies, and Derek Bell.

I have one track of Maire ni Chathasaigh playing on a CD by Arty McGlynn and Nollaig Casey, called Lead the Knave. I like Maire's harp style a lot on that track. Now I am wondering why I have never bought any of her CD's.

Thanks to keberoxu's recent posts I have started listening to all my harp CD's in a more focused way. I listen to them in the car on my way to and from work.

That Green Linnet link to samples of tracks by Sileas posted by our dear departed katlaughing on 23 Jan 00 - 12:09 PM looks like it has been hijacked by a vacuum cleaner company, or something. Green Linnet still exists, but Here is an alternative:

Sileas - links to some of their tracks via a Google search

You can use the same method to find sample tracks by other artists.
