The Lucky Smile
“One of Scotland’s brightest young harpists” (The Scotsman) Rachel Hair’s “The Lucky Smile” is an eagerly awaited follow up from the highly acclaimed solo album “Hubcaps and Potholes”. Produced by respected musician Angus Lyon (18months later, Box Club) the album features Rachel’s newly formed trio of harp with acoustic guitarist Paul Tracey and double bassist Andy Sharkey. With an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary material, tinged with influences ranging from jazz and funk, to classical and bluegrass and her Scots-Irish heritage, “The Lucky Smile” confirms Hair’s ability as a prolific composer, as well as an incredibly talented harpist. Featuring guest appearances from award winning Gaelic singer Joy Dunlop, drummer Scott Mackay (Roddy Hart), cajon player Paul Jennings (Old Blind Dogs, The Bar Room Mountaineers) and jazz violinist Graham McGeoch (The Fortunate Sons) the album showcases the harp as a lead band instrument allowing its vibrance and vitality to shine through with sparkle and poise.

Clarsach na Banrighe (The Queen's Harp)
Medieval and 18th century Scottish harp music played on a newly commissioned replica of the famous medieval Scottish Queen Mary harp.
The metal strings give a very different sound from the gut-strung harp on these often stately pieces.
The medieval section of the CD includes 13th century church repertory from St Andrews Cathedral (where the CD was recorded), as well as from Inchcolm island in the Firth of Forth.
The second half of the CD presents, for the first time, the complete repertory of John Robertson of Lude, Perthshire, who owned and played the Queen Mary harp in the early 18th century. As well as airs, ports and a family salute, it includes a Gaelic song on the battle of Sherrifmuir, which has been newly matched to its original tune and is sung by guest Mairead Murnion from Co Down, Ireland.
