The Rouge Gallery was alive with the unique sound of harp strings this weekend, as Kerri Lynn Zwicker and the Harp Rouge brought their unique performance to Rossland.

Zwicker is accompanied on the harp and vocals by Jeff Faragher on cello and Tammy Cooper on flute. Together the three occupy particular niches in songs that ranged from Celtic to almost punk-rock.

Zwicker, who plays out of Edmonton, attributed her style of playing to her Celtic roots but also diverged from that to play many genres and specializes in a form of Latin harp playing, which she said is quite normal in places like Colombia, where she studied the music. She said though, that in Latin America, it is mostly men who play the instrument and carry it above their shoulders while walking through town.

This was Rouge Music’s second show of the season and the gallery’s seats were full despite other events happening at the same time. The next part of the series will be Dec. 10 as Rossland’s Rougemusic kicks off the Christmas season with a concert of Christmas music from the Baroque to the Contemporary.

Alison Girvan, vocal soloist from Nelson teams up with contemporary jazz guitarist and Selkirk College faculty member Paul Lansberg. The show will be at 7:30 p.m. at the Rouge Gallery where tickets are also available for $15.

For more info, call the gallery at 362-9609.
