We also send thanks to Anne Roos for her Harping that is heard within this tale.
Anne Roos - Celtic Harper
Anne has graciously allowed us to use three pieces for Fintan's Harp in this tale. The tracks are Bridget Cruise from the album Haste to the Wedding, The Seas Are Deep from the album Mermaids and Mariners and The Golden Castle from the album A Light in the Forest. More details about Anne and these albums can be found on her Contributor page.
Anne Roos is considered at the top of her field as a Celtic harpist. She is a many-faceted performer who excels as a soloist in concert, as well as with her ensemble, with her years of experience and a wide range of choices from her music list. She is in great demand for corporate and private events and continues to be a favorite to play for weddings and receptions.
Anne’s music repertoire spans traditional Celtic (Irish, Scottish, Welsh), English, folk,
religious and secular, Early, Renaissance and classical music, to Broadway, contemporary, pop
and Jazz, and is virtually unlimited. She can easily provide the traditional “Canon in D” and
“Here Comes the Bride” for a wedding processional, and play classic Frank Sinatra or Metallica
at a reception. Her ability to faithfully play such a broad range of musical styles has helped to
establish her popularity.
