Anne Denholm & Eira Lynn Jones
Sponsored by the London and South East Branch of The Clarsach Society
Join Anne Denholm and Eira Lynn Jones for an atmospheric recital of contemporary works in which each piece creates a vivid and colourful sound world to transport your imagination and emotions, from a deep- sea lagoon to a quirky, relentless procession and dance. This recital will feature both solo and duet works, including uniting the sounds of the clarsach and pedal harp in this very special double anniversary year!
