Harpistry came about as a result of requests from family, friends and clients who wanted to extend their enjoyment of a live harp performance or therapeutic session. Musician friends of mine happily supported the compilation concept and joined me to produce an amazing collection of arrangements for you to enjoy.
The first half of the CD is bright, mood-enhancing music played on a variety of instruments.
The last half of the CD is comprised of harp solos that slow down incrementally in tempi to encourage relaxation and a calm transition into a peaceful sleep. It is not recommended to use the shuffle feature when listening to this CD.
