Harp and bass album launch 31st May ‘12
May 24th, 2012
Scottish harpist and composer Fiona Rutherford and double bassist Amy Duncan release their mini album ‘Quirk’, featuring percussion by Stuart Clark.
Fiona’s compositions encompass a wide range of influences. Its not folk, its not contemporary classical, and its not jazz, but its music that loves these genres! The blend of Scottish harp and double bass combine in an unusual and exciting way interweaving melodies and interesting rhythms.
