Dr Tamzin Elliott

Join us ONLINE, Sunday 24 March, 4–5 pm, Irish time for our Harpers' Gathering community social time, hosted by HHSI volunteer, Barbara Karlik. Come and enjoy harp-related talk, share your projects and progress, and try out tunes you want to play in front of a small, very supportive audience. 

From 5–6 pm, enjoy an informal interview with this month's guest, Tamzin Elliott.

Tamzin Elliott is a composer and harpist based in Los Angeles. Tamzin’s music stems from their love of immersive, world-building experiences and the process of learning music by rote, often incorporating elements of early European music and living folk music such as polyphony from the Republic of Georgia. As a harpist they specialize in historical performance practice, performing European Renaissance repertoire as well as 17th- to 18th-century Irish and Scottish repertory on the wire-strung cláirseach. The work, reconstructing this repertory from Ireland and Scotland, with the tutelage of harpist and scholar Siobhán Armstrong, has played a major role in the development of Tamzin’s current composition project, Meidelant: an opera on the Maidenhood of Morgan le Fay. Tamzin holds a doctorate in composition from the University of Southern California, studying under Ted Hearne, Don Crockett, and Sean Friar.

Tamzin is one of our spring tutors for Acadamh na gCláirseach–Academy of Early Irish Harp, and will be co-teaching Airs and graces: music from Scotland, with James Ruff.
