Cynthia Cathcart

Alchemy of a Rose

Cynthia recaptures the original sound of the music of Scotland and Ireland in this collection of melodies played on the wire strung harp. The uniquely bell–like resonance of brass, silver and gold strings carries the listener to a time when legends lived and magic was a part of every day.
