"DC Donovan, Editor"

"Laurie Riley is a superb harpist with an unusual sound due to her Celtic-based but international outlook and her double-string harp (two rows of strings that sound like two harps playing at once). Few harpists in the world can play Celtic and South American styles alike, never mind tunes that have echoes of such divergent styles." D. C. Donovan, Editor, World Discoveries. - World Discoveries

She has recorded twelve albums of harp music, and authored numerous books and videos.
