Thomas Loefke - 'Northern Isles Soundscapes'
Celtic Harp with Slideshow 'North Atlantic Soundscapes'
7.30pm, 26th June
Old Lodge Theatre
We are very sorry to tell you that Angelika Nielsen who is part of the touring 'Nordan' performance has had to cancel her participation of the Norðan tour of New Zealand. However her musical partner Thomas Loefke will be performing solo programme 'Northern Isles Soundscapes' on his celtic harp.
Islands in the North Atlantic, like Tory Island - the Irish island of legend and myth, the Hebridean Island of Staffa or the wild archipelago of the Faroe Islands situated between the Shetlands and Iceland - these are the places where Thomas spends a considerable amount of time every year to compose music. Dramatic coastal landscapes, the wide open space of the Atlantic ocean and the ever changing sky reflect in the pieces of music written there.
The tunes are accompanied by photographs Thomas took during his island travels.
Thomas Loefke learnt his trade in Dublin from Ireland's leading harp players - Máire Ní Cháthasaigh, Helen Davies and Áine Ní Dhúill. Since 1984 he has been playing professionally and has won several international prizes, including first prize at the O'Carolan Harp Festival in Keadue. His 2nd album Norland Wind was released by the Irish top class label Celtic Heartbeat. Besides his work with Norðan and Norland Wind featuring Clannad’s Noel Duggan, he also tours with Riverdance violinist Máire Breatnach, Cello/guitar-duo Acoustic Eidolon, pianist Lutz Gerlach, and as a soloist.
