Aisling Urwin is a harper-songwriter-teacher from Kenmare in the South West of Ireland.
With a background in Irish Traditional Music, Aisling strives to paint the harp in new colours, challenging traditional views in an effort to stretch people's preconceptions of what the harp should sound like, taking it into new sonic spaces.
Aisling's music combines the organic sounds of lever harp and natural vocals with rich electronic sounds and textures.
In 2018, she began touring with World Music artist ‘Ajeet’. This creative friendship led to the formation of ‘Woven Kin,’ a new duo project between Aisling and Siobhán Moore (AKA Ajeet) featuring harmony-centric melodies and folk instruments such as harp, bodhrán, bouzouki and mandolin. Woven Kin’s 2021 debut album, ‘Hibernate,’ is out now.
I love sharing the magic of the harp with others and specialise in teaching Irish Trad music, modern contemporary music and song accompaniment.
