I am really delighted to announce that the Juice Vocal Ensemble will be giving the first (and second) performance of "The Ballad Of The Harp Weaver" as part of their "Snow Queens" series of concerts.
The piece is a setting of the poem of the same name by Edna St. Vincent Millay, a poet definitely worthy of further investigation!
The poem tells of an impoverished mother weaving clothes for her beloved son with the strings of "a harp with a woman's head nobody will buy". I think it is probably fair to say that my other life as a folk musician has had some bearing on the setting!
