ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The beauty of Amy's harp music, the warmth of her personality and her unique performance style combine to create an unforgettable musical experience - both in live performance and through her recordings.

Amy's unique arrangements of traditional Irish, Welsh, English and American Christmas carols – plus her stunning original composition "I Heard a Bird Sing" – are sure to drive the cold winter away with their haunting beauty. The music's effect and its inspiring messages will linger long after the last note rings from the harp.

About Amy:

In 1988, Amy Kortuem received a Celtic harp as a gift from an Irish family friend. It’s a gift that has changed her life. The harp has become her passion and purpose — to bring its beautiful music to as many people as possible.

That gift has also become a thriving business. With three recordings and a rich performance history and schedule to her credit, Amy’s playing is in high demand. She has performed for everyone from preschoolers to presidents and everywhere from cathedrals to county fairs, entertaining audiences both large and small.

She is in demand as a performer at such highly attended events as the Minnesota Irish Fair in St. Paul, Minnesota. She also owns a Lyon & Healy concert harp and has played with many orchestras and ensembles.

Amy also produces and performs concerts of her own. Her annual holiday benefit concerts and St. Patrick’s Day shows are highly anticipated and attended. Her concerts have received rave reviews and have raised funds to benefit local charities.

All Hayle To The Days
Very nicely played and sung by Amy, very similar to Pamela Bruner and Kim Robertson.
