Cynthia in performance

Cynthia is available for both private functions and concerts, particularly in the Washington, DC area. When on tour, she can be found performing well outside the area she calls home.

Cynthia’s concerts range from an all–Scottish program to a very Irish all–Turlough O’Carolan program, and can be an hour or longer or stop at one piece, as required by the event for which she is engaged. From early music of centuries ago to more recent American melodies, she endeavors to find and perform whatever music fits the resonant strings of her variously–sized harps.

In addition to strictly musical performances, Cynthia offers the following lectures and presentations for a general audience:
