Louise Thomson to perform at the World Harp Congress 2020

Harpist Louise Thomson looks forward to her upcoming performance in collaboration with Polly Ives at St David’s Hall, Cardiff, as part of the World Harp Congress 2020. At the time of writing, the WHC hopes that all events will still go ahead (Covid-19).

Louise and Polly will be presenting their own musical version of the well-loved children’s story Tiddler, the Story-telling Fish written by award-winning author Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, which forms part of their ongoing ‘Concerteenies: Harp’ project. The beautifully rhythmic and descriptive words are intertwined with music by Smetana, McKay, Tchaikovsky, Tournier, Fauré and Gershwin. This special underwater journey also involves bubbles, scarves, fabrics, toy-fish, watery lighting and percussion along the way.
