    On her tenth release, Angels in Disguise, Celtic harpist Kim Robertson adds a new dimension to her music: The evocative sounds of her voice, previously heard only in concert.

    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.

    Sheer Beauty
    Virginia Allain (Poinciana) | March 5th, 2018
    An ad described Angel in Disguise this way: "Kim unveils a new instrument: her voice. Similar in style to Eny and Serah, Robertson's graceful harp is accompanied by the sublime violin of Alasdair Fraser." The tunes lilt and soothe as the notes ripple from the harp. I love it. Many of the songs are traditional celtic folk songs.

    Dreamy and Haunting! You Won't Be Disappointed
    Ted Schultz | April 14th, 2017
    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!

    I finally got tired of carrying this CD from the house to the truck and back, so I bought another copy.

    Thoroughly enjoyable ---- often played!
    Jessica Willis | October 16th, 2015
    I originally bought this CD in a local bookstore on a whim. The stores display tower allowed you to hear the song "Contemplate" as a sample. It sold me. I've enjoyed it so much that I'm here at shopping for another of Kim Robertson's CD's.... I've been playing "Angels in Disguise" relentlessly. I enjoy relaxing background music while surfing the Internet and this CD, out of many is my far! Kim Robertson does vocals on several songs on this CD and she has a superb voice, yet does not overwhelm and distract, it is an etremely relaxing and enjoyable CD.

    Angelic & Uplifting
    Luz Gardner | July 8th, 2015
    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.

    I bought this CD in a little gift shop that let you listen to samplings. I have just about worn the CD out. My friends always ask what I'm playing when they hear it. It's haunting, dreamy and completely mood altering. You will love it.

    Angelic and magically transporting!
    Brianna Neal | February 17th, 2012
    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.

    Combining the authentic traditions of the Celtic Harp with a dynamic flair for world rhythms and on-the-edge improvisation, Kim Robertson has stretched the boundaries of the harp. This daring redefinition of harp music is at its most vibrant in her concert appearances. Remarking on her greatest love, live performance, she says, "That's where the magic is...between the audience and the performer...that's when I truly express myself. Without that experience, I don't think I could make meaningful recordings. Not only can I see how people are responding, but I take more chances playing live."

    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.
