The less said about 2020 the better...
2019 was yet another busy year, starting with teaching at the Harp Academy in a gloriously snowed-in Oslo, followed by a US tour in April (and back to the Somerset Festival in July) and some trips to Germany (most notably workshops at Proitzer Mühle and Rendsburger Harfentage). I also had the joy of playing again at Piping Live in Glasgow and visiting the Nordic Harp Meeting in Gjøvik, Norway, but the favorite tour of 2019 has to be the month-long trip to China as part of Terje Isungset's Ice Music project, playing a dozen concerts from Beijing to Hong Kong. Luckily this was just before you-know-what happened...
In 2018 I took part of the Somerset Harp Festival in New Jersey for the first time, and also returned to another of my all-time favorite festivals - the Harfentreffen in Germany. Together with other apperances at the Rendsburger Harfentage, Proitzer Harfentage, the William Kennedy Piping Festival and harp days in Stockholm, Tallinn and Malmö (to name a few) I also organized the Nordic Harp Meeting in Lund, so this was a pretty busy year!
In 2017 I visited Estonia twice - first for a harp weekend in Tallinn and then organizing and performing at the Nordic Harp Meeting in Viljandi. In the spring I taught at the Proitzer Mühle Harfentage for the first time (going back there in 2018 and 2019) and also played at the biggest Nordic-themed festival in the US, Norsk Høstfest. Finally I had the honour of being part of the amazing 3rd Virtual Harp Summit (read more about that here.)
2016 was a relatively calm year with performances/workshops mostly in Tallinn and San Francisco but also at the Nordic Harp Meeting in Denmark.
In 2015 I taught at the Dinan International Celtic Harp Festival again as well as harp events in Amsterdam, Tallinn, Munich, Los Angeles and not least the VAKA folk festival in Akureyri, Iceland!
In 2014 I went to the Nordic Harp Meeting in Norway, taught and performed at the Pentreffest festival in Cardiff, The Dusty Strings Harp Symposium in Seattle, Harfentreffen in Germany, Moniaive Folk Festival in Scotland and The Prague Harp Festival.
In the years before 2014 I taught and performed at The World Harp Congress in Amstedam, The Rio Harp Festival, Festival of Harps in California, Gooikoorts Festival, Dubrovnik Early Music Festival, Stamford Harp Festival, Odenwälder Harfentagen, Musikantentreffen, Süddeutsches Harfenfestival, International Fest of Rediscovered and Forgotten Music in Poland, Festival Tra Lago e Monti, Pentreffest in Wales, Folk Club Forlí, Lempo World Music Festival, Førde World Music Festival, and many more...
