Take one accomplished singing harper…
Add a storytelling gift described as ‘absolutely enthralling’…
Blend in wonderful songs, sounds, and tales by the score… Sprinkle with high spirits; Season with wit and wisdom… Gently touch hearts; Stir in audience participation…”
With Celtic harp, storytelling, and an array of instruments, Eve Watters celebrates timeless tradition with new spirit and sparkling style, to resonate with all ages. Tales-with-a-twist interlace with ancient airs, songs in a dozen languages, and historic harps, Native-style flute, concertina, banjo, autoharp, pennywhistle or dulcimer.
Eve Watters has sustained a multi-faceted career in harp, folksong, and storytelling. This modern-day bard has had the opportunity to perform for diverse audiences at hundreds of community, corporate and private venues during two decades of extensive travel throughout Virginia, in 17 states, and in Britain and Australia. Now in her ninth year as a Virginia Commission for the Arts Touring artist, Eve is a two-time Governor’s Award for the Arts nominee. She has been a Virginia Artist-in-Education since 1986. She is the University of Virginia Health System’s first Musician-in-Residence.
“When Eve Watters plays the harp, the willows weep.
When she sings, the fishes dance.
And when she tells stories, people beg for more.”
MidAtlantic Storytellers Conference
“Watters’ voice, deft and light as a butterfly, dances above the acoustic accompaniment”
