The Harpers ConnellanThe Harpers Connellan Ref: A0353
Kathleen Loughnane
"What always strikes me about Kathleen Loughnane's music is its tastiness, arrived at through the extraordinary sensitivity of her arrangements. Her playing of slow airs stops me in my tracks. The phrasing and 'holding' in the airs, the syncopation and offbeat rhythms of the dance tunes all contribute to the uniquely spirited character of her music. This album is of particular interest in that it pushes a door ajar for us, giving us access to some of the energies of the Gaelic harp tradition during the late 17th and early 18th centuries, the era of the Wild Geese." Mary Bergin.

Affairs of the HarpAffairs of the Harp Ref: A0101
Kathleen Loughnane
Kathleen, the face behind the harp of Galway quartet Dordán, finally gets around to delivering a solo album. Affairs of the Harp is a harp album pure and simple, but one with a difference. For a start, it calls on names like Alec Finn, Sharon Shannon, Seán Ryan and her Dordán compatriot Martina Goggin, to lend a subtle hand to the proceedings.
The tunes are available as Sheet Music.

Harping OnHarping On Ref: A0102
Kathleen Loughnane
There was a time in Ireland when many harp players were submerged in layers of cliché. Kathleen Loughnane was different, a player of quiet dignity, she saw both the harp’s place in history and its relevance to today’s music. She is perhaps best known as a member of the baroque/traditional band Dordán, but she maintains a strong independent streak. Harping On, her second album, is a diverse collection of old and new harp tunes, along with tunes borrowed from other traditions and other instruments.The Irish Examiner (October 3, 2002). Pat Ahern.
The tunes are available as Sheet Music.

Kathleen Loughnane
"Kathleen’s playing is wonderfully fluid and full of ‘elegant musicality’ - a phrase I once heard an old man use to describe a musician’s performance" Irish Music Mag December 2005
"The arrangements are kept nicely varied, with Loughnane’s deft precise arrangements always to the fore, as is only right." Hot Press October 2005
