‘This publication brings together a distinguished group of academics, composers and performers … Paul Dooley provides a fascinating description of a shared harp tradition across Scotland, Wales and Ireland … The breadth of this work ensures its significance to Irish music studies, organology, ethnomusicology, historical studies and cultural studies … its contribution to learning as a whole is very valuable to academics, harpists and composers with respect to music history, instrument development, current processes of music composition and topics in music scholarship’, Susan Motherway, Ethnomusicology Forum (May 2017).

‘Excellently researched and wonderfully presented. This collection explores aspects of our shared history and cultural narrative that enhances our knowledge, appreciation and awareness of our heritage and national identity',  Ireland’s Genealogical Gazette (July 2017)
