Redwing Gallery, TR18 2HT

Internationally acclaimed harpist Lily Neill takes listeners on a journey through the

musical history of the harp! From the 17th century harp players/composers such as

Cornelius Lyons and Turlough O’Carolan through traditional music and Neill’s own

compositions and arrangements, this program explores and embraces the harp’s multifaceted personality.

Lily Neill began her career as a child, performing for the likes of US President Bill

Clinton and alongside Irish super-group, "The Chieftains", whose leader Paddy Moloney

called her a musician of “tremendous promise”. Her original compositions alongside

her dynamic mixture of Irish jigs and reels, Lithuanian dances, Finnish tangos and Tatar

folk songs have enthralled audiences from Chicago to Dublin to Paris to Moscow. Irish

Music Magazine has praised Lily’s “…musical and artistic freedom which is boundless

in its possibility and contagious in its energy and passion."

“…superb music”.

- fRoots

“…part of the new Harp Revolution

extolling aspects of harp music never previously heard”.

- Irish Music Magazine

Tickets £9 from Redwing Gallery, Penzance.
