Simon Chadwick is a specialist in the ancient music of Scotland and Ireland. Simon lives in St Andrews on the east coast of Scotland, and has been studying and teaching the clarsach or Gaelic harp since 1999. He has made three CDs of historical Scottish and Irish music.
In 2007, Simon commissioned a replica of the medieval Queen Mary harp held in the National Museum of Scotland, from the Irish sculptor, Davy Patton. This beautifully decorated instrument with its precious metal strings forms the inspiration for Simon’s investigation of the old traditions.
