Harp and Scottish Gaelic Song | Performance and Instruction
I play Scottish, Irish, and Cape Breton music on the harp, sing Scottish Gaelic songs, and teach both the Scottish Gaelic language and song repertoire. Based in Seattle and Vancouver BC, I am thoroughly immersed in the local Gaelic scene.

In addition to performing and teaching, I am available to be the Fear an Taighe (master of ceremonies) at céilidhs. If you don't know what a céilidh is, there's a page all about them linked below.

I also to teach people Scottish céilidh dances.
