A County Mayo resident, Ms. Hambly won the senior All-Ireland titles on harp and concertina in 1994 and, also, the prestigious Keadue and Granard harp competitions. She has released three critically acclaimed CDs, "The Thorn Tree," "Between the Showers," and "Golden Lights and Green Shadows." She has recorded with many other artists and published two books of her arrangements. She tours extensively and has appeared at most of the major harp and Irish music festivals in the U.S. and Europe. William Jackson hails from Glasgow and has been at the forefront of Scottish traditional music for nearly 30 years. In addition to his stature as one of the Scotland’s leading harpers and multi-instrumentalists, he is an internationally renowned composer. Mr. Jackson was a founding member of Ossian in 1976, which became one of Scotland's best-loved traditional bands.
