Ensembles

Andrea performs as a soloist and also appears with a variety of ensembles. Each group creates rich and varied music ranging from spritely to sublime. In a duet, trio or quartet, the harp is the perfect instrument to make music with flute, violin, cello  or soprano. Andrea also plays in combinations of 2, 3 or even 4 harps!

Andrea - Willow Brae, Trio Bella, Harpourri• Willow Brae
The warmth of Andrea's Celtic harp is the perfect complement for the soaring sounds of Laura MacKenzie's wooden flute, tin whistle, bagpipes, concertina or voice. Willow Brae is also available as a trio with percussion, and for the ultimate treat, with Irish dancers.
