Event description

Description

Springtide has been delighting audiences for a decade with a distinctive blend of more than one hundred strings. In this special concert at the High Court, Springtide has designed a programme of Celtic influenced vocal and instrumental music, complemented by classical and world music genres. With Jackie Luke on the unique hammered dulcimer, the innovative Canberra cellist Rita Gibson, and harpist Greg Wilson, Springtide recently toured the UK and Ireland to great acclaim including performances at the O’Carolan Harp Festival in County Meath, Ireland and the World Cimbalom Congress in Great Malvern. In a recent tour of New Zealand they were described as “masters on their instruments, each taking their turn to wow us. There was humour and toe-tapping, beauty and tragedy”, Sue Rose ‘Acoustic Routes’. They have two recordings to their credit, an instrumental collection The Wisdom of Trees, and Spindrifthighlighting their vocal repertoire.
