"I didn't know a harp could do that!" is a remark often heard at Laurie Riley's concerts. She is known for her ability to make a harp sound like a whole new instrument. Audiences feel her music as a visceral experience. Among her many credits, Laurie has appeared in concert as harpist to The Chieftains, was the first American harpist to be invited to judge and perform for the prestigious International O'Carolan Festival in County Roscommon, Ireland, and has toured throughout the US and in Canada since 1985. She plays traditional, ethnic, and contempo-rary selections from around the world, as well as compositions of her own, on the rare double-strung harp. She has recorded twelve albums of harp music, authored numerous books, and made several instructional videos. Her mu-sic has been featured on American Airlines and on the Narada Collections, and she has appeared on NPR's All Things Considered. She also judges harp competitions and teaches in the US and abroad.
