Celtic harpist Kim Robertson expands the capabilities of this majestic and ancient instrument. On Tender Shepherd, she focuses on lullabies and airs, providing melodies for quiet times. You'll hear lyrical, heart-touching music played with delicacy, grace and skill in this set of tunes from traditional Irish, Welsh and Scottish lore, plus the classical strains of Bach's "Sheep May Safely Graze." Inspired by a legacy and beauty that is communicated in the music, Robertson's unique quality is clearly felt through a sensitive and fluid touch. ~ Backroads Music/Heartbeats
