First released in 1985, The New Strung Harp is a luminous, sweet approach to music for the Irish harp -- Mairi Ni Chathasaig has a light, fleet-fingered approach that utilizes a rippling style of ornamentation that provides her with a unique musical signature. Just precisely what the end result is, is less than easy to define -- Celtic music, certainly, something with an Irish heart. However, the faeries are well at work here as well.
