Aisling Urwin is a harpist and songwriter from the seaside town of Kenmare in the South West of Ireland. Her broad range of musical influences range from Kate Bush to Bon Iver to Jeff Buckley.
Aisling aspires to use the harp in a contemporary context, challenging traditional views in an effort to stretch people's preconceptions about what the harp should sound like.
Her work reflects the sounds of today's youthful modern Irish traditional music, an ever evolving tradition.
Aisling's music combines the organic sounds of lever harp and natural vocals with rich electronic sounds and textures.
Aisling Urwin's new album, 'The Dragonfly Jig', is available online through Spotify, iTunes & all major platforms for streaming and download.
Aisling has been performing at weddings & ceremonies for over a decade and can provide solo harp/harp and vocals for your wedding in either contemporary/modern or Traditional Irish styles. She also plays in a wedding duo, Geallta which features harp, vocals and violin.
Aisling also performs with a variety of musicians at weddings so if there's a particular instrument you want as well as the harp, (eg. guitar/ saxophone/ violin/ percussion) don't hesitate to let her know and she can arrange another musician for the day.
