    Wonderful CD. Really beautiful and magical.
    Cecelia Vega | August 6th, 2014
    This is a lovely cd. Harp music at its very best. I discovered it several years ago and it is still one of my absolute favorites. It has a pure and serene feel to it, magical, mysterious and very sensual. Several tracks are really quite haunting and somewhat melancholic. I highly recommend it!

    A Tape to Remember...
    Alex Harris (Springfield) | July 29th, 2010
    Help! My tape player (yes, I still have one) just devoured my Moonrise tape!! (However, as just retribution for such wickedness, my tape player was itself destroyed in the very process of gobbling up the tape - so I will finally join the 21st century and buy a Cd player). I assume the tape and Cd versions of Moonrise are the same. The tape was one of my favorite. I highly recommend it!

    Beautiful, relaxing, haunting,
    Veronica Owens | June 6th, 2010
    This was the first CD I heard by Kim Robertson. Her solo harp music on this album is indescribable- you can hear every note. It is totally relaxing and can be listened to in the background just to unwind. Then when I focus on the music it is exquisite- very moving, emotional, it really opens my heart and fills it with peace and joy. Her music sounds like it is created from a place not of this world.

    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.
