I am now in the process of making my harp CD.  I’m excited because its my favorites for weddings.  This CD is going to have the most requested music that I play.  I am happy with the quality of the recording along with making the hard copies, I will also post on ITunes.  Craig Parton is the man-in-charge.  His expertise is priceless…

AAA Rated Harp and Bagpipe Gig…It’s the way to go

A HARP AND BAGPIPE FOR ALL OCCASIONS

I have played many gigs with the combination of the two instruments.  It works well for any kind of function be it wedding or party.  I can play more time on the harp .  For example:

30 Min. prelude:  Harp (music of your choice)

Processional:  Bagpipes (Play for the Wedding party and then the Bride or just the Bride for a more dramatic entrance)

Service:  Harp or Bagpipe (music of your choice)

Recessional:  Bagpipe (this is a dramatic way to exit)

I have played Anniversary and Family Reunion parties with both instruments.  The evening is filled with music without breaks.  I can rest while playing the harp.  Both instruments work well for funerals with the harp playing for receiving friends and the bagpipes for the service.

Any way you wish to use the instruments, they compliment each other well.  They are a great combination and one can save money using a single person to play both instruments.  Listen to Kelly play selections on the harp with the Audio player in the right upper corner of the site.  Press>> to hear different songs that are named and numbered.  Also, visit the video in Gallery and watch Kelly play the bagpipes on the beach.  Enjoy!

Scots-Irish Festival Dandridge, TN

A HARP AND BAGPIPE FOR ALL OCCASIONS

“Lone Piper”

The day starts with individual bagpipe competition then it’s off to the noon parade with the pipe band.  The Knoxville Pipes and Drums march in strength through the town of Dandridge with Scottish pride!  We perform a 30 minute concert following the opening ceremony.  We will then  assemble on the dike overlooking loch Douglas for another concert early after noon.  Sometimes, I play a Celtic harp concert on the lower stage in the early evening.  Then everyone takes a while to rest and take in the festive delights of the festival.  I love a chance to check out the vendors and the food!  I listen to the talented groups and watch the dancers with their colorful costumes.  It is a treat and makes me proud to be a part of this great heritage.  While watching the closing entertainers, I began to prepare for my solo bagpipe performance for the closing ceremony.  As Colin Grant-Adams introduces me, my heart will surely begin to pound with excitement.  I strike the pipes in and they start to hum, still in great tune even with the night air.  The spotlight flashes on and my fingers are playing the old familiar tunes, Amazing Grace and Scotland the Brave to exit into the darkness.  I can feel the quiet emotion of the crowd.  This is always one of my most exciting experiences with the pipes.  I am very blessed to be involved with an event of this kind.  Check out www.MainStreetDandridge.com
