‘Something akin to magic happens when an artist is born into a musical world… Straight away, the listening ear can tell the mark of these early events and all that they bequeath, the quiet confidence in the music itself and its time-tested ability to carry the secret messages, the unassuming capacity to wear extraordinary skill and mastery so lightly…’
– Iarla Ó Lionaird


‘Her revolutionary style on the harp is scintillating – played with power and panache, no concession to the complexity of the instrument, confirming her as one of the most significant musicians redefining harp at present’
– The Living Tradition.
