Anne Roos - Celtic Harpist
Anne has graciously allowed us to use three pieces for Fintan's Harp in this tale. The tracks are Bridget Cruise from the album Haste to the Wedding, The Seas Are Deep from the album Mermaids and Mariners and The Golden Castle from the album A Light in the Forest. More details about Anne and these albums can be found on her Contributor Page.
Anne’s music repertoire spans traditional Celtic (Irish, Scottish, Welsh), English, folk, religious and secular, Early, Renaissance and classical music, to Broadway, contemporary, pop and Jazz, and is virtually unlimited. She can easily provide the traditional “Canon in D” and “Here Comes the Bride” for a wedding processional, and play classic Frank Sinatra or Metallica at a reception. Her ability to faithfully play such a broad range of musical styles has helped to establish her popularity. Visit Anne's website Celtic harp music or find more details on her Contributor Page.
