Kathleen has enjoyed learning about the traditional Irish harp, which she has played for nine years, and has been privileged to accept invitations to volunteer and play at celebrations in Washington, D.C., New York City, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Ohio.

A musician by avocation, Kathleen studied classical music as a child, and embraced the folk tradition as an adult. Her early encounters with Irish music began in her family, picking out tunes by ear on the tin whistle. Her first encounter with the Irish (or lever) harp began in France while teaching.

She enjoys a small bit of composing and arranging, as well.

The buoyant tone of the Irish harp sets a graceful tone for an event, encouraging lively and uplifting conversation.

Somewhat more petite than the classical harp, the smaller size of the Irish harp allows for easy transportation, keeping logistical issues to a minimum and making it a practical choice for hard-to-reach locations.

Kathleen responded quickly to my request and was available and willing to play anything we desired. I left the playlist to her professional judgement and was not disappointed! She was wonderful and made my event (baby shower) very very special indeed! I can't wait to ask her back for my annual Christmas time Cookie Exchange!

We were so happy to have Kathleen play her lovely harp at my Mother's 80th birthday celebration (actually, it was her 20th birthday, as she was born on Leap Year - so an extra-special occasion!). Kathleen arrived early so she could be prepared, and we also were able to communicate before-hand about the details and a couple of special songs my mother had requested, which Kathleen was also able to play. She fit right in to the scene and was able to adjust the volume of the music according to the noise level of the party. Several guests commented on how beautiful the music was and its soothing quality. A real treat. And also a very nice person to talk to!

Kathleen was so wonderful. She performed at a reception we had after my son's baptism. I would highly recommend her and will use her again in the future.
