About Karen Marshalsay in Concert

Karen Marshalsay is a master of traditional Scottish harp music.

Specialising on all three Scottish harps – both gut and wire-strung models and the baroque bray harp with its buzzing sitar effect – Karen has appeared throughout the UK, Europe, America and Australia.

Career highlights include the Edinburgh International Festival, Celtic Connections, and the Australian National Folk Festival, working with African and Paraguayan musicians and on multi-cultural projects including Yatra, which premiered at the Edinburgh Mela in 2008.

With a particular interest in pipe music, Karen has played with Allan MacDonald in his acclaimed pibroch concerts, and for the National Piping Centre’s 2013 Ceòl na Piòba concert.

As a composer, Karen has produced new works for Celtic Connections’ New Voices series and the Distil showcase concerts for the Scottish Traditional Music Trust and has published her own series of harp music books, including Key Techniques for Harp in 2012.

Karen was clarsach tutor at the National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music at Plockton for 7 years, and wire and bray harp tutor at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland where she also lectured in Scottish and world music.

All proceeds from this concert are going towards Andrew Kennedy's Gap Year with Scripture Union.

Venue: Craiglockhart Parish Church, 1 Craiglockhart Drive North, EH14 Edinburgh
