    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 Robersons 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.

    Rich and sparkling!

    If a Celtic harp for Christmas is good, then a harp and cello are even better. The deep, smooth richness of Virginia Kron's cello perfectly balances Kim Robertson's sprightly, sparkling harpestry. The musical fare is similar to that of Robertson's solo album, "Celtic Christmas"--traditional holiday carols, many familiar and few obscure, but all enjoyable. Peaceful, resonant and calming, this is perfect music to counterbalance the dreaded holiday stress. Put on some warm slippers, sip a fragrant herbal tea and let yourself unwind. Robertson and Kron also recorded another lovely album together, the warm-hearted "Gratitude", which is sure to win your heart as well. Two other gently entrancing Christmas recordings worth checking out are Norland Wind's "December Journey" and "One Wintry Night" by hammered-dulcimer player Jerry Read Smith and his wife, flutist Lisa Maria Smith.

    These Make the Best Christmas Gifts!

    I always buy a couple before the holidays and give them to people I meet through my work. So far everyone has loved them and thought they are such thoughtful gifts. I get them because I love the music but it also simplifies that part of my Christmas shopping. No one has caught on to my scheme yet!

    Thank you for the beautiful music you have given with such harmony and craft through your instruments - the harp and cello. My family and I have found your music very inspirational and also relaxing (our 14 month old little girl sleeps well with such music playing). I'm glad to think she is being musically influenced by the way you play.

    My favourite Christmas CD of all! Kim Robertson captures the essence of Christmas with her angelic sound. The pieces on the CD are absolutely beautiful and it is the perfect thing to listen to on a cold winter's night by the fire. I would definitely recommend this CD to others.

    This album has become part of my Christmas tradition. I orignally bought it as a cassette way back when and listened to it so many times it wore out. Sooo I just had to upgrade and get a CD. Obviously, this music has staying power.

    I bought Celtic Christmas II a week ago and can't put it down. All other Christmas music doesn't compare. The cello with harp - what emotion!

    Just about my favorite Christmas album! I always loved the harp but pairing it with the cello is fantastic. Beautiful interweaving melodies.
