Angelic and magically transporting!
Reviewer: Brianna Neal
This sweet, soothing, heartfelt music is perfect for meditation and healing. Robertson combines her harpistry and whispery voice with gentle, ambient accompaniments by Scottish fiddler Alistair Fraser, Ron Neiman on hammered dulcimer, guitarist Liv Singh Khalsa, and percussionist Kit Bailey. This is my favorite music for self-healing, whether of the physical or psychological sort (if, indeed, there is really any difference). In a somewhat similar vein, Robertson collaborated with singer Singh Kaur on several albums of healing music in Kaur's "Crimson Collection" series. Try also "Gratitude", featuring duets by Robertson and cellist Virginia Kron.
Dreamy and Haunting! You Won't Be Disappointed
I was first introduced to Kim Robertsons music when I bought a cassette of The Water Spirit at a thrift store for a buck. Wow! I'd never heard anything so beautiful! I wanted to get a CD so that I could choose random and repeat and queitly veg and meditate or sleep. At first when I received the CD I was disappointed to see the note on the back that there were vocals. The Water Spirit is solely instrumental. But I popped it in the CD player and Kim has a beautiful, haunting voice that blends well with the instruments. I love this CD and I play it every night before bed and during sleep. You're sure to get a good nights sleep and if you ever get a headache, play it while lying down with your eyes closed. You'll never need asprin again!
Angelic & Uplifting
Her voice is angelic and the songs are so uplifting. One of my most favorite CD's & I play it often. I liked this CD with haunting voice than her instrumental Treasures of the Celtic Harp.
Along with her own arrangements of Irish, Scottish, and Japanese instrumentals, Kim has included five elegant original songs and two scottish folk songs that capture the haunting quality of her vocals. The album opens with Doucement, one of two selections with French lyrics inspired by her years of study in France. These pieces, along with Hello My Friend, speak eloquently of timeless love, while selections like Contemplate and Angels in Disguise reflect on the power of imagination to transcend limitation.
The dreamy production quality of the album adds to the magic and clarity of Kim's expressive vocals. Her crystalline harp melodies are further enhanced by warm, ethereal instrumental arrangements featuring violin, hammered dulcimer, guitar and percussion. After listening to this celestial yet sensuous music, you may wonder if Kim herself is an angel in disguise.

Kim Robertson's repertoire includes timeless Celtic melodies, classical, Renaissance and medieval works, and original compositions which, since the release of her 1991 album, Angels in Disguise, also feature her beautiful lyrics and vocals.
Born and raised in Wisconsin, Kim Robertson began studying piano at age eight, continuing on into college as a piano major. I was in Kim Robertson's senior year of high school that Kim first began to learn the pedal or orchestral harp. "I was never a very good pedal harp student since I was not interested in a symphonic career. I found it fascinating only as a sideline."
Kim Robertsons introduction to improvisation early on by a jazz pianist enlarged her musical vision, freeing her from the need for written music. This freedom influenced both her piano and classical harp training, building trust in her own creative instincts and allowing many future innovations in her style.
In the mid-70's, Kim Robertson discovered the Celtic harp. This quickly evolved into a profound love for the instrument and set her upon the original path of exploration for which she is renowned. In 1979, she moved to the California coast where she was approached by Invincible Music.
The first recording session turned into her debut recording Wind Shadows with producer Liv Singh Khalsa, a rich blend of old Irish melodies and original compositions whose success projected Kim Robertson onto the vanguard of the new acoustic scene.
Kim Robertson's love affair with Celtic music has blossomed into a highly visible performing, recording, and teaching career. Her work encompasses 18 recording projects including Tender Shepherd, Love Song to a Planet, and her 1993 appearance on the Sugo harp anthology Harvest Moon. Kim Robertson has published nine volumes of harp arrangements and two instructional videos and pursues an international itinerary of concerts, workshops, and retreats. Through the prism of the Celtic harp, one of the world's oldest and most loved instruments, Kim Robertson has found and focused her artistic vision to create an intimate and universal chamber music of the heart.
