Event Details

Karen will be doing a solo gig with all three Scottish harps – gut and wire -strung clarsachs and buzzing brays

Karen Marshalsay’s music draws on a wealth of differing experiences, developed through the folk world of fèisean, festivals, workshops and tuition from leading players such as Alison Kinnaird, and studies with Paraguayan harp master Rito Pederson. Specialising on all three Scottish harps – both gut- and wire-strung models and the baroque bray harp with its buzzing sitar effect – Karen has appeared throughout the UK, Europe, America and Australia. Career highlights include the Edinburgh International Festival, Celtic Connections, the Australian National Folk Festival, and working with African, Indian and Paraguayan musicians and on multi-cultural projects including Yatra, which premiered at the Edinburgh Mela in 2008. With a particular interest in pipe music, Karen has played with Allan MacDonald in his acclaimed pibroch concerts, and for the National Piping Centre’s 2013 Ceòl na Piòba concert.
