Aislinn Gagliardi is an Irish harpist and composer based in Chicago who is well sought after as a performer, teacher and recording artist. Drawing from her background in Irish dance, and influenced by a diverse musical range from classical to Cape Breton, Aislinn's distinct style shines through her music in an open and honest way. Known for her syncopated and melodic accompaniment, her compositions and arrangements offer a fresh perspective to the Irish music tradition. Her recently released debut solo harp album, The Thin Place has been called "stunning, a monumental piece of work from a very talented and driven harper" (Jack Baker of Irish American News).
Aislinn performs frequently at the Milwaukee Irish Fest and is a regular at traditional Irish music sessions in and around Chicago. She is on faculty at the Milwaukee Irish Fest School of Music, teaches workshops at the Old Town School of Folk Music, and has taught workshops at the Milwaukee Irish Fest Summer school and the Madison Folk Harp Society.
