Ruth and Cornish composer Graham Fitkin have taken old Gaelic songs and tunes from bagpipe and fiddle books and used them to make ‘creative transcriptions’ for Ruth’s three harps - the sitar-like Renaissance bray harp, the beautiful medieval Gaelic wire harp (clàrsach) and the Scottish lever harp.

Ruth Wall has performed on stages around the world, including at the Royal Albert Hall, Sydney Opera House, Berlin Philharmonic, Radio City New York, and as part of the London Olympics celebrations.

She has featured as a soloist with the London Chamber Orchestra and the BBC Concert Orchestra, and has toured extensively with the likes of Goldfrapp, Kathryn Tickell, Ockham's Razor, and Graham Fitkin.

BBC Music Magazine has hailed her “immaculate playing”, while The Guardian has described her as “virtuosic”.
