Cheyenne Brown ‘Homebound’ video makes top listing of harp YouTubes videos published by the Harp Column magazine

Exciting news that the premier American pedal harp magazine, the ‘Harp Column’ has listed one of my solo videos from a Homebound performance as one of the ’33 Best Harp Videos on YouTube’.
“The mark of a really creative performance is when a harpist can remind her fellow harpists exactly how versatile and unexpected the harp can be. Alaskan-born, Scottish based harper Cheyenne Brown delivers exactly that in this performance clip. Her jazzy-bluesy music slowly morphs into something jazzy-Scottish sounding. Her music is free and creative and improvisational-feeling. Throw in a lot of precise lever work and “bent” notes and you’ve got a winning combination.”

Wow, what unfortunate weather Scotland’s been having this summer! Luckily I’ve been out and about abroad quite a bit so haven’t been too rained out! I had such a spectacular time at this summer’s Common Ground on the Hill in Maryland, USA. Besides my lovely harp students in three great classes, I was fortunate to participate in a gospel choir, a breakdancing class, some yoga, and met a lot of fabulous blues musicians! Blues harp, coming soon!!

Coming up soon is teaching at Germany’s Interkeltisches Folkfestival, and then a jam-packed weekend of concerts, workshops, and private lessons to celebrate the opening of a new harp store in Leerdam, in the Netherlands. Then a bit of a tromp around Mont Blanc, but that will be harp-free…

Later on in August, the North Atlantic Trio will be heading down to the UK’s biggest bluegrass gathering, the Didmartin Bluegrass Festival, to do a mainstage slot on the Saturday afternoon. Closer to home, we’ll be playing in Glasgow on Sept 15th at the Griffin (nr Charing Cross) in a double bill with the John Hinshelwood Band.

Happy Summer and hope to see you soon!
