    What an amazing piece of music. Wasn't sure I was going to like it at the very beginning but she is indeed a "harpweaver" and I was drawn right into the piece. I noticed the lever throws (upwards) were done with her thumb but not all the downwards ones were. Some other fingers involved..... but you certainly see the benefit of your technique, Marilyn, as it is done so seamlessly. Fantastic harmonics - maybe one day. Also a very talented quartet she was accompanied by and a fabulous ocean setting. More please!!

    Barb S says all I was feeling as well. Maeve's playing is so seamlessly flowing. I love the tinkly sounds in there as well. And the harmonics! Yes, Barb, maybe someday. :) The setting was so lovely. I listened further as I made my dinner & heard her at home playing for "comfort", with the Boston Symphony, singing & playing "Bees Wing", and a great instructional video from the Dingle Trad Festival on her techniques & explorations of her harp & her ideas of her hands as instruments. Blew me away!

    Her playing is so effortless and flawless. You hardly notice her lever changes. The chords and rhythm s are very luscious and fluid.
