A bit about Nancy:
Nancy Thym’s programs, which interweave harp music, songs, stories and dance, are warmly received all over the world. In her native California, she studied theater, dance and anthropology and later folklore and ethnomusicology. For over forty years she has lived in Germany where she transforms her extensive research on the history of the harp into programs which are both entertaining and educational: storytelling combined with songs and harp music, ballad programs on specific themes, or one-woman theater pieces in which she portrays harpists of the past.
She performs on a variety of historical harps and her repertoire encompasses many styles: medieval music, ancient Scottish ballads, early romantic German Lieder, songs of the 19th century itinerant harpers.
Her storytelling programs for children and adults range from medieval romances, to tales from Scotland, Ireland, Scandinavia and Germany interspersed with music on harp, lyre or hurdy-gurdy from the appropriate period and place.
Let yourself be enchanted by a spellbinding web of stories, music and song!
