Lily Neil playing in Moscow

10 March 2012 Central House of Music

Harpist Lily Neil will be playing a number of concerts in Moscow from the 10th of March until the 17th.

Lily Neill is an internationally recognised harp player who has performed across Europe and the United States. Lauded for her technical mastery of the harp, Lily’s original compositions and interpretations of traditional music from the folk realm have taken the harp into broader spheres of experimentation. Lily’s readiness to bring the harp into new territory further emboldens her performances and recordings. Irish Music Magazine writes, “Lily Neill’s musical compass remains eclectic. While she courts the old manuscripts and composers, her Sat Nav is placed firmly leftfield. That sphere includes plentiful original compositions which form the backbone of her live and recorded programme so far. One of the most challenging and provocative musicians of her time – Lily Neill’s daredevil approach works wonders”.
