the Victorian years, the harp was adopted by genteel
young ladies in the British Isles, who regaled their beaus with Our Fine National Aires like "Danny Boy"
and "The Harp that Once Through Tara's Halls". These melodious strains seemed ideally placed on the sweet strings of the harp.
recognition of all the lovely airs plucked by generations of gracious
ladies, Woad has declared their music a "Danny Boy Free Zone".
for us the journey down the wide and easy lane, nay we've chosen
the road less travelled, and have dedicated our hands to playing traditional music (think Fiddles and Bagpipes)
on the harp.
of course, true Celts, we are not opposed to deep and soul-stirring
laments (a tear or so adds to the Guiness), we also feel the need to kick off
our shoes to dance a reel or jig.
were however, born in the 20th century, and as children of our times
refuse to let tradition get in the way of having a good time or making good music.
Indeed no music, not even from the hallowed halls of Classical music is safe from us.
