Whistling Gardens Celtic Harpist
Loril has always had a deep love and respect for the traditional Celtic Music of her heritage - music that extends from the medieval era to the present day. Although she is fluent in many styles of music, including classical and contemporary, it is the wild and haunting Celtic songs that speak to her heart.
Loril’s performances emphasize the Celtic harp’s power and strength as well as its gentle side as she chooses her music from many eras. Recently she was a featured performer at the Bell 100th Anniversary Gala at The Sanderson Centre and the Hamilton Music Awards Celtic Showcase. Loril currently performs solo harp, playing public and private venues in Canada and the US. She is also half of the harp/bodhran duo Cymer.
Although she studied classical piano at the Royal Conservatory of Music, Loril loved playing the more untamed, improvisational traditional songs of the Celtic countries (Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany, Isle of Man). She plays several instruments, including keyboard, harpsichord, krumhorn, recorder and trombone. Loril is also no stranger to the theatre as she has performed with comedy troupes on stage and radio as well as being a musician/actor for improvisational theatre.
Throughout the busy season, visitors might delight in Loril’s soothing “busking” talents. As a local artist volunteering her time for your enjoyment, your contributions and requests are always welcomed as you may also purchase her CD and take her beautiful music with you!
