The Three Harps Of Christmas

The Three Harps of Christmas – Internationally renowned harpist Ruth Wall takes audiences on a candlelit journey through carols, medieval and new music on concert harp, Gaelic wire strung harp and the Renaissance bray harp at special historic venues.

Ruth Wall is well known as one of the UK’s leading harpists. She has toured to Japan, USA, Canada, Australia and throughout Europe and Scandinavia. Recently she has worked with BBC Concert Orchestra, London Chamber Orchestra, Goldfrapp, Kathryn Tickell and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, and has recorded for BBC serial ‘The White Queen‘ and Ben Wheatley’s film ‘Sightseers’. She performs on large concert harp, Gaelic wire strung harp and buzzing bray harp.

This unique evening focuses on traditional carols arranged for Ruth Wall’s extraordinary harps by award winning composer Graham Fitkin. The candlelit evening will be introduced by Graham, who will trace the history of the carols, and Ruth will perform these beautiful arrangements alongside medieval music and gems from Debussy, Piazzolla and Satie.
