Once Upon A Harp: The Music of Turlough O'Carolan
Steve Baughman has never had his picture on the cover of Rolling Stone, but this year he did have his name on the cover of Acoustic Guitar Magazine.
Steve is a pioneer of arranging the music of Turlough O’Carolan for solo guitar. His “pandemic project“ was to arrange, master, and then record a CD of the music, all on one guitar. In this event he will be sharing pieces from “Once Upon a Harp.”
Patrice Haan hasn’t seen her photo on the cover of Rolling Stone either, but she’s thrilled to be playing harp beside Steve. A composer and singer-songwriter herself, Patrice has long been an acolyte of O’Carolan’s music. Former director of the nonprofit Healing Muses, most days Patrice plays harp for cancer patients.
The last of the Irish bards, Turlough O'Carolan was a blind Celtic harper, composer and singer, who is considered by many to be Ireland's national composer.
