Recordings and Sheet Music from Ailie Robertson


Ailie Robertson is a musician in the broadest sense: composer, arranger, teacher, improviser and “harp virtuoso”. “Her synthesis of Irish, Scottish and contemporary harping technique into an individual style represents the realization of otherwise unimagined possibilities for the Celtic harp”. Although just 24, she already has some of the most impressive credentials in the Scottish harp world. She holds a 1st class MA in performance from the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, is a 4-time National Mod Gold Medalist, and was also a finalist in the BBC Radio Scotland Young Musician of the Year 2008, 1st prizewinner at the inaugural London Harp Competition, and best overall musician at the Edinburgh Competition Festival. She has represented Scotland at the Pan Celtic Festival in Ireland, was awarded an ESU scholarship in recognition of her virtuosic clarsach playing’, and was a winner of the New Roots award. She works as a soloist for Yehudi Menuhin’s Live Music Now! program, and has given recitals at events all over Scotland, including performing for HRH the Queen. When not performing, Ailie is in great demand as a tutor and gives lesson and masterclasses all over Scotland and beyond.
