Anne-Marie O'Farrell

Photograph of Anne-Marie O'FarrellHarpist and composer Anne-Marie O'Farrell holds professional diplomas in many instruments along with international awards for original composition. An honours graduate of UCD, she was awarded a first class honours MA in Composition from the National University of Ireland, Maynooth.

She has composed for a variety of instrumental media and her compositions are featured on the higher examination grades of the Royal Conservatory in Canada, Trinity College London, the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music and the RIAM.

Her works have been performed by international artists including Ireland's National Chamber Choir, the BBC Concert Orchestra and the BBC Singers. She lectures in composition at the DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama and has taught harp at Kylemore College Music Centre (CDETB) where she founded a thriving harp department.

She is regularly invited to give lecture recitals, workshops and masterclasses at international festivals in addition to acting as jury member for international harp competitions. As the leading exponent of the Irish or lever harp as a recital instrument, her development and expansion of its repertoire have led to performances and recordings for TV and radio throughout Europe, the USA, Scandinavia, Japan, Russia and Africa.

A prolific recording artist, she has released numerous recordings including Just So Bach, Heads & Harps, Harping Bach to Carolan, The Jig's Up, My Lagan Love and Double Strung with Cormac De Barra. Anne-Marie is especially noted for the unique levering techniques which she continues to develop on the harp, as a result of which she was consultant to Salvi harpmakers on the design of their Irish harp, the Livia.
