Ann Heymann
Ann, from Minnesota, is recognised as the foremost exponent of the wire-strung harp in the world. The wire-strung harp, or clarsach, was the harp of the Gaels of Ireland and Scotland. Through her knowledge of traditional music from her Irish American family background, and her study of the surviving music and manuscripts, Ann has re-invented the techniques necessary to play this majestic instrument.

The Harper's LandThe Harper's Land Ref: A0150
Alison Kinnaird & Ann Heymann
Alison Kinnaird is already well known, and in Ann Heymann we have a virtuoso second to none on the wire strung harp. Again, Temple produces a first. This was the first record to combine the sounds of the gut and the wire strung harps. This album is a record of two different, but related, small harps. The approach to the music, and the harps on which it is played, has been formed by years of research in both Scotland and Ireland. The music itself has been gleaned from many sources, including the oral tradition, ancient archives and collections, and also includes original compositions by Ann Heymann and Alison Kinnaird, the harpers.

Harps, Pipes & FiddlesHarps, Pipes & Fiddles Ref: A0152
Harps, Pipes & Fiddles - the instruments that have carried, invented and expanded the traditional music of Scotland and Ireland for centuries. Of course it is all the better if these proud instruments are in the right hands, and on this album we proudly present leading exponents of the tradition. The list of musicians on this album (mainly from Scotland with a few very notable exceptions from Ireland, England and the U.S.) read like a 'Who's Who' of traditional music.
