Aislinn Gagliardi presents her first solo Irish harp album The Thin Place. The album blends popular traditional Irish tunes with those less commonly played, and features four of her own compositions including one with the album’s namesake. Joining Aislinn on select tracks are some of Chicago’s finest Irish musicians: Liz Carroll (fiddle), Teresa Shine (fiddle) and John Williams (concertina).
Tied in with the album’s overall concept of “the thin place” (the hazy boundary between the fairy world and this one), the album release party coincides with Samhain (or Halloween) when this boundary is at its most unstable. Guest musicians Liz Carroll and Teresa Shine will perform as well.
Aislinn is a professional Irish harpist based in Chicago, and is well sought after as a performer, teacher and recording artist. Drawing from her background in Irish dance and influenced by a diverse musical range from classical to Cape Breton, Aislinn's distinct style shines through her music in an open and honest way. Known for her syncopated and rhythmic accompaniment, her compositions and arrangements offer a fresh perspective to the Irish music tradition.
