Slow Airs
(2017) (Recorded in 2004) Janet Harbison Solo

Slow Airs are the most profound and evocative aspect of Irish music and the harp repertoire and on this album.

Janet released her new album Slow Airs. Recorded at the Irish Harp Centre, Castleconnell, Co. Limerick over 4 days in July 2004, this album has long awaited its release!

Slow Airs by their very nature are very much of the ageless tradition of Irish music and song that created them.
