Whats up next year- glorious music in an intimate setting

Harriet Earis –  Harriet’s aim is to show a new approach to harp-playing, using the Celtic harp as a strong melody instrument. Together with her love of Celtic music, Harriet has been studying Irish, Scots Gaelic and Welsh and has a Cambridge degree in Celtic Studies.

Harriet has already given harp recitals around the world with 16 tours across America, 6 tours of Germany, a Canadian tour and concerts in Amsterdam, France, Belgium, Ireland and Holland.  She was the All Britain Champion on the harp in 2000 and 2002, and in 2007 she won the coveted “Open Stage Award” at the Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow, chosen from 82 different acts competing for the title and represented Wales in the Pan Celtic Festival in Lorient, France.

Her solo CD ‘Jumping Ahead’ was launched in 2003 and since then she has had a number of succcessful recording collaborations. For more information see

 Adriano Sangineto

Born and raised in the environment of his  father’s violin making, Adriano is formed as a musician coming in contact with leading figures of the international popular culture, such as Alan Stivell, Carlos Nunez, the Chieftains and others. Fond of folk instruments in general, expresses a musical eclecticism in various musical genres, from ancient to modern music, through classical music, new age, pop, and reassessing the Italian and European folk music with original arrangements. Adriano played several wind instruments and string and specializes in clarinet at the Conservatory of Milan and Celtic harp making the self-taught studies. Continuing to search for new sounds, he has developed a customized technique that transforms the Celtic harp in a great involvement tool distorting every connotation. . In 2012 has been recognized in the “Gulf of Poets film festival” of Lerici as a composer of the best soundtrack of the short films in competition. Harp Creativa is the title of the first solo album, released in 2012, taken from the homonymous spectacle aimed at demonstrating the versatility of the Celtic harp. In 2014 he released his second solo album, published by Rox Records, “Arpacadabra”, in which he proposes a harp rhythm that invites to dance on a variety of European dances through a very marked and involving rhythm. Along with twin sister Catherine, form the Ensemble Sangineto with which he devoted himself to the Irish and Italian folk music with Celtic harp and psaltery. There are three record releases of the group, “Altea Rosa” (2006), “On A Silver Cloud” (2013) and “seministerra” (2014). In the summer of 2014, the Ensemble Sangineto made a European tour (Italy, Spain, Belgium and France) getting acclaim from international public and explicit appreciations press and radio broadcasters.
