Ron also performs in a duo with critically acclaimed harpist Rachel Hair. Purveyors of Scotland’s most ancient and contemporary instruments, clarsach and acoustic guitar, these two halves created a whole in September 2017: a subtle yin-yang between spine-tingling clarity and virtuosic drive.
Originally paired for a 2 and half week tour of Europe, their musical chemistry was apparent from the outset. From snappy strathspeys to heartfelt airs, from rip-roaring reels to chirpy jigs – they are the perfect synthesis of the modern and the traditional.
Described as “One of the UK’s finest contemporary Celtic harpists” Rachel herself is a highly sought after performer, composer and tutor both as a soloist and with the duo. Having released 4 critically acclaimed albums, Rachel and Ron are about to record with Scott Wood at Oak Ridge records in the winter.
