Harp: Celtic, folk, classical, all levels
Abigail Palmer covers many different genres of music and likes to think outside of the box. She began playing Celtic harp in 1999 and recorded her first original composition at age fourteen. At age seventeen, Abigail traveled to Scotland to compete in the Scottish Mod and received third place in the advanced level harp competition. She then went on to pursue pedal harp as her primary instrument at Shenandoah Conservatory in Winchester, VA. In 2012, she recorded her first full length album of original music called Sow Hope, which features her on electric and acoustic harp, vocals, percussion, and piano. She regularly performs Celtic and Renaissance music with her family and has been featured at the Maryland Renaissance Festival since 1996. Overall Abigail is a dynamic, eclectic and thoughtful performer who has a lot to offer an audience.
Abigail has been teaching harp since 2007 and has taught with two different professional music studios in the DC area. Abigail now has her own studio, where she teaches regular private lessons as well has hosts quarterly student recitals. She has also recently begun putting together student ensembles.
