 Contribution to the Show

Jo Morrison has graciously allowed us to use her music as the harp of the Great Dagda, and you can hear her beautiful harping in Episode 010, The Harp's Voice Unleashed, Episode 011 The Wind of Change and Episode 019, The Hawk of Achill.

 Biography

Jo Morrison is nationally known for her evocative interpretation of Scottish and Irish music on the harp. Chuck Lipsig from Green Man Review's Best of 2000 listings states "Jo gets more out of the harp than should be possible."

Having spent several months in 2005 teaching, writing music, and performing on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland, Jo's knowledge and understanding of the Celtic genre puts her in great demand as performer, adjudicator, and teacher across the country. "Morrison is at ease with this authentic Celtic music, and lends to it a sense of honest exuberance I find refreshing." -- The Harp Column

She frequently performs with the Celtic duo, Port Righ, featuring harp and shuttle pipe, the Highland Pipe's quieter cousin. The duo has performed concerts at locations such as the An Lanntair, Library of Congress, Somerset Harp Festival, the Smithsonian, various Scottish Festivals around the United States and also in Scotland, Ireland, and Germany. Their commitment to a traditional style gives them a sound comfortable both in today's modern society and also fitting for Renaissance festivals, historic sites, and other recreationist events. Port Righ released their first recording in 2007: "Na Bi Gòrach -- Don't be Foolish" .
