Ellen Tepper is one seriously talented woman. She is a phenomenal Celtic harpist, a witty historian/lecturer, a skillful arranger, an outstanding performer, AND a skilled artisan… Tepper’s precise style is clean and light, and the excellent production values here make every note shimmer.

I was enthralled by Ellen’s performance at my wedding in November. She played with two colleagues–a fiddler and a flute player…together, their music was entrancing.
I have a Ph.D. in Folk Culture and I can tell you that Ellen’s traditional musical sound is altogether authentic and representative of the very best in Celtic harping. (That said, her classical pieces were perfectly lovely too.)
Let me also say that I was amazed by Ellen’s responsiveness and professionalism.
To illustrate: two or three days before my wedding date, I decided I really wanted a pretty obscure Irish air [Moran’s Return] for the processional… I sent a recording of the piece to Ellen (to whom it was also unfamiliar) and — abra-ca-dabra — it was played flawlessly, just as I had dreamed.
