CD A0698: The Three Strands

The Three Strands - Passion, Sorrow and Joy
Shelley Fairplay

CD Album: The Three Strands by Shelley Fairplay“Throughout generations tales have been told of three musical strands. The details differ in each story, but they’re always played by a harpist, and they always encompass the human experience.”

Hear Harpist Shelley Fairplay musically entwine The Three Strands; Passion Sorrow and Joy through a diverse range of styles from the traditional to the present day. The music is performed on a 47 string concert pedal harp and a golden electro-lever harp that Shelley wears to play. Several tracks also use added looper and effect pedals.
