Fayetteville harpist Beth Stockdell released her debut album, A Priceless Meadow, on Wednesday, October 8, 2014.
Beth Stockdell’s first album, A Priceless Meadow, features solo acoustic lever harp in a collection of songs which highlight the beauty and lyricism of the harp. Half the songs on the album were written specifically for harp to showcase its natural talents. The album also features several traditional Celtic tunes including new arrangements and combinations created specifically for this album. Recording was done on my Thormahlen Ceili harp.
