Harpland - Ruth Wall

Join us for a unique concert with internationally renowned harpist Ruth Wall. Exploring the theme of migration in its many forms, Ruth and composer Graham Fitkin – who introduces the evening – have been re-imagining old tunes for her three distinctive harps – the Scottish lever harp, Renaissance bray harp and Gaelic wire strung harp. Focusing on tunes from her native Scotland, Ruth conjures up mesmerising and intricate patterns on these atmospheric instruments, connecting old and new. 

Scottish harpist Ruth Wall has performed on stages around the world – at the Royal Albert Hall, Sydney Opera House, Berlin Philharmonic, Gucci 75th celebrations in Rome and Florence, Radio City New York, as part of the London Olympic celebrations and for the HRH Prince of Wales and HRH The Queen. Ruth has featured as a soloist with the London Chamber Orchestra and the BBC Concert Orchestra and toured extensively with British band Goldfrapp, Kathryn Tickell, Ockhams Razor and her partner the composer Graham Fitkin.
