First United Methodist Church, 263 E Mill St, Akron OH
Virtuoso Harpists of the British Isles Parker Ramsay, baroque harps & direction with Amanda Powell, soprano
The harp was the voice of the marginalized peoples of the British Isles – Irish, Welsh, and Scots. Ireland’s legendary blind harper, Turlough O’Carolan, was one of several great harpers of the 17th and 18th centuries. Today’s young virtuoso harpist, Parker Ramsay, weaves their stories and their music into an evening of intimate artistry. Six Apollo’s Fire musicians on violins, flute, cello, hammered dulcimer, and plucked instruments join in the sparkling music of O’Carolan, Purcell, William Lawes, and Handel.
