Amy McAllister ‘String on String’ Album Launch
Sat 1 April 2017, 20:00 – 23:00 BST
Co.Antrim born harpist and singer Amy McAllister is an exciting new talent on the traditional music scene. Drawing on her traditional roots, she adopts a contemporary approach to her music with clear and distinctive vocals and a contemporary harp style.
Amy has toured across North America, Canada and Japan with Celtic Crossroads and Rhythm of the Dance, represented Ireland at the Rio Harp Festival (one of the largest international harp festivals) and was selected as one of our ‘Emerging Artists’ in 2016.
It has been a busy year for Amy that will culminate in the launch of her debut album ‘String on String’ on April 1st at the Duncairn Arts Centre. The launch will feature an eclectic mix of traditional songs and tunes, original music, and guest musicians.
“Antrim harpist Amy McAllister is making her own way with the instrument…she impresses as much for her vocals as she does for her playing…a talent to watch out for.” Ian Patterson, The Thin Air
