Highland Heart - Kim Robertson
Label: Gourd Music
Performers: Kim Robertson
For her latest solo harp recording Kim has selected pieces mainly from the rich repertoire of Irish and Scottish airs and songs.
Kim interprets both classic melodies-If I Were A Blackbird, Loch Lomond, and The Selkie-and some lesser-known gems such as:
Sleep Soond I'da Moarnin', Ghosts of Gight, and Dark Woman of the Mountains. The recording also features Kim's arrangement of a section of Gustav Holst's The Music of Jupiter from his inspired work The Planets.
Additional selections include two compositions by Robert Burns, Ae Fond Kiss and Jamie, Come Try Me, and Robert Tannahill's Are You Sleeping, Maggie?
As on her previous recordings Kim combines superb artistry with a passionate sense of tradition, bringing a contemporary touch to a centuries-old instrument.
