Album Review

The Silver String shows that there's more to Alison Kinnaird than music. Along with the CD there's also a DVD detailing her exquisite work with glass (there's also footage of her playing both harp and cello). The CD illustrates the breadth of her musical abilities. Featuring her on three different kinds of harp — the gut-string, the clarsach, and the most remarkable bray harp — on a mix of traditional and original material. She's helped out by a couple of members of the Battlefield Band, along with Ann Heyman, who often plays harp with her, and vocalist Christine Primrose. Certainly the most interesting piece is her own "Psalmsong," a recent composition for an art installation where Kinnaird plays the glass to unusual effect. It all adds to the album's diversity and beauty. The focus is very much on the traditional, however, and Kinnaird brings a full quarter-century of experience as a Scots harpist to bear on the material, giving each tune a jewel-like, thoughtful setting. A wonderful disc indeed.
