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 an enthusiastic traveller and love to bring what I have learned to new people and places.

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.

decorative Scottish Harp Society of America Names New Distinguished Judges
(posted on Apr 4th, 2015)

I'm deeply honoured to be included in this short list of Distinguished Judges named by the Scottish Harp Society of America.

The Committee of Distinguished Judges of the SHSA would like to announce that we have added five more judges to the title of "distinguished". They are:

Seumas Gagne, Jo Morrison, Sharon Knowles from the US, and Corrina Hewat and Patsy Seddon from Scotland.

We felt that their knowledge of Scottish music and/or experience judging qualified them to be so honored, and we congratulate them warmly! We hope to see them on the Scottish Games circuit soon.

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.
