Fionnuala Kirby is a Celtic Harpist based near Plymouth in Devon, with wide repertoire of traditional, classical, popular and religious tunes, and some Paraguayan harp music.
She plays a 36-string Yew Clarsach made by Tim Hampson of Bere Ferrers, Devon, and has been teaching herself the Celtic Harp since she was given one in 2005 for her 33rd birthday.
Inspiration for her ever-expanding repertoire comes from many sources, such as her English and Irish roots and love of folk music, her classical and religious upbringing, and her love of rhythm and world music. Fionnuala plays a wide range of traditional tunes, classical pieces, popular tunes and Paraguayan harp music. In 2012 by popular request she recorded her first CD called “Travelling Tunes”, as a showcase of her repertoire at the time. In 2017 she recorded some video footage and a second CD called “Harp from the Heart”. Both have been very much appreciated.
