Shar & Adrian have wonderful fun playing together and creating a programme for Celtic harp, accordion and fiddle. Yes... harp & accordion!

STRIKE THE HARP! was born out of friendships, a love of traditional music and a request for a Celtic harp concert for the World Music Concert Series at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, March 2004.
Royal Conservatory of Music's Worlds Music Concert Series (2004)
Festival of the Sound concert cruise (2007, 2008, 2009, 2012)
...STRIKE THE HARP is actually the name of a tune from Wales a gentle tune, in fact, despite it’s name!
