Summary - The Highland harp and its music, which is to be heard again in the Isle of Skye after 300 years.

She discusses how important it is that this type of music is heard again, the famous harpists that we had years ago, the sound that is to be heard from this harp and how similar they will be to the ones that originally existed.
