Harp Showcase
by Anita Farley, Patrice Haan, Caolifhionne (Kee-lan) Mears

Anita Farley has performed at renaissance fairs and historical events since the 1980s. Anita specializes in Celtic and traditional ballads with accompaniment on the Irish lap harp. In 1993, she released Kind Friends and Companions, an album of traditional ballads with additional tracks by John Taylor (Emerald), Richard Ferry (Golden Bough), Peg Healy, Robert Hill, and Caolifhionne.

Patrice Haan performs original songs of immediacy and power and tunes from the Celtic tradition. Patrice has always wanted to play harp and finally took it up six years ago. Patrice may be more familiar from performances with Sylvia Herold (Flaming Dames) or Tony Marcus (Leftover Dreams). Patrice is the current president of the Bay Area Folk Harp Society (BAFHS).
