Harp and Scottish Gaelic Song | Performance and Instruction
I play Scottish, Irish, and Cape Breton music on the harp, sing Scottish Gaelic songs, and teach both the Scottish Gaelic language and song repertoire. Based in Seattle and Vancouver BC, I am thoroughly immersed in the local Gaelic scene.

In addition to performing and teaching, I am available to be the Fear an Taighe (master of ceremonies) at céilidhs. If you don't know what a céilidh is, there's a page all about them linked below.

I also to teach people Scottish céilidh dances.

Heath Andrews Reviews Baile Ard
Celtic harp and Gaelic lyrics dont make for the most commonly heard recordings today, but with Seumas Gagne behind them, they make for one of the most compelling.
