Album Notes
Sharlene Wallace is one of Canada's most prolific and influential Celtic (lever) harpists. Playing both Classical (pedal) and lever harps has led Sharlene to copiously diverse musical influences and opportunities.

Winner of two international competitions, the Lyon & Healy International Pop & Jazz Lever Harp Competition (Tucson, Arizona) and the Concours d'Improvisation de Rencontres Internationales de Harpe Celtique (Dinan, France), Sharlene has created six independent CDs which frequently grace radio airwaves (the rhyme & the river, Journey of Shadows, Beyond the Waves, Island Mountain and Anticipation (a collaborated CD with flutist/pianist Susan Piltch) and Q&A (an album with harpist Kim Robertson). These albums feature many of Sharlene’s compositions inspired by her explorations in South American, Celtic, Classical and contemporary music and by her close connection with the Canadian landscape. Her music is deeply evocative, rhythmic, lyrical, spacious, complex, subtle, compelling.

Sharlene tours internationally giving concerts, workshops, masterclasses and adjudications. She has performed in numerous festivals and concert series across North America and in Europe in large concert halls and intimate settings as a solo performer, in ensembles and guesting with symphony orchestras. She has collaborated with classical, avant garde, traditional, world, jazz and blues musicians such as George Koller, Sal Ferreras, Adrian Dolan, Susan Piltch, Joseph Macerollo, Loretto Reid, Kim Robertson, vivie 'vinçent, Ben Grossman, Kirk Elliott, Doug Cox and Lucile Brais-Hildesheim.

Sharlene is on the faculty of York University teaching Classical and lever harps. Her own performance degree is from the University of Toronto where she studied with the eminent Judy Loman. Sharlene is Principal Harpist with the Guelph, Oakville and Kingston Symphonies.

almost as good as "live"!
We heard Sharlene Wallace for the first time at the Festival of the Sound concert at Parry Sound. This CD was almost as good as listening to her "live"!

Celtic Harp and Beyond
Sharlene Wallace stretches the traditional limits of Celtic Harp with her crystalline technique, haunting melodies and rhythmic compositions - I can't stop listening! Her creativity doesn't end with the music, the liner notes completely drew me in and enhanced my experience - some of the best I've read.


who says the harp isn't sexy?
For anyone who thought the harp couldn't be a sensual instrument. Wonderful latin rhythms, fantastic harp playing, wonderful accompanying instruments, great music. Highly recommended.

I love this CD. The accordian and harp create a unique sound. Really love the tune El Rio...
