Abigail Selby performs on lever, pedal, and electric harp, as well as sings with harp accompaniment. She is well-versed in Celtic, Classical, popular, and original music. Abigail as well is a singer-songwriter, composer, and recording artist. During her concerts or performances, you can expect a wide-range of original and popular music of all decades. Abigail is also regularly booked for weddings, parties, or any event that harp would compliment. She performs either solo or with drummer and percussionist Eric Selby. Together the duo offers much diversity and energy to their live performances. Audiences are surprised that only two people are able to make such a sound!

Abigail has lived in the DC metropolitan area since 1999, and has much experience performing in many of the east coast states, such as Maryland, Virginia, DC, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama, to name a few.

Abigail began playing Celtic harp in 1999 and recorded her first original composition at age fourteen. Abigail received several first place awards at various Celtic harp competitions in her teenage years. At age seventeen, Abigail received third place in the advanced level harp competition in the Scottish Mod in Edinburgh. She also received an award for out-standing achievement upon graduating with a degree in Classical harp performance from Shenandoah Conservatory in Winchester, VA. Abigail has performed with groups such as Krishna Das, National String Symphonia, Maggie Sansone, Fractal Cat & Trio Galilei.

I couldn't be happier with everything from her communication to her beautiful music she provided for my bridal shower. She was prompt, accommodating and self sufficient (which was appreciated given the many other to-do's tearing me in a thousand directions right before any event). Would highly recommend Abigail and appreciate her talent and professionalism.
