Beautiful harp music will be provided by Kasha Breau who is a traditional harpist and singer playing original music and folk songs from around the world on modern reconstructions of medieval and renaissance harps as well as the modern concert harp. One of her harps is double-strung which can produce the lovely cascading waterfall effect of the Welsh triple-harp (Telyn deires). She has been playing the music of Wales for over 35 years. Kasha is a graduate of the Hartt School of Music and has taught harp, voice, piano, and organ in addition to her performances and workshops in harp playing technique throughout the United States. She can be heard playing harp and keyboard in various bands and musical groups.
