Magical Strings to Perform at Lake Prince Woods

May 3, 2016

Lake Prince Woods will host Magical Strings in concert on Saturday, May 7, 2:00 pm in the Lake Prince Woods Portsmouth Center. The public is invited to attend.

MAGICAL STRINGS centers on the Celtic harp and hammered dulcimer of Philip and Pam Boulding, at times augmented by violin, cello, pennywhistle, percussion and various instruments from around the world. Over the years their sound has drawn a large and loyal following captivated by a combination of traditional Celtic arrangements, original compositions and subtle world music influences. Their virtuosity and expressive style have been described as "warm, graceful and sonically gorgeous" by the Washington Post. Their music and stories have the effect of holding an audience and opening their hearts to a forgotten world well-veiled by the bustle and trappings of modern life.

Creating a tapestry of sound, Philip and Pam Boulding will be performing on their own hand-crafted instruments.  The Bouldings, who have been touring internationally for 36 years, have recorded over 20 albums.
