About Kim Robertson and Brett Lipshutz

Kim Robertson and Brett Lipshutz

Music Icon

As one of the pioneers of the Celtic harp in America, Kim Robertson’s style and approach to the instrument is uniquely personal and original. Trained classically on piano and orchestral harp, she brings a contemporary touch to both her original compositions and her arrangements of Celtic music. Her skill and stage presence as a performer has brought her a loyal following and she is a popular teacher as well. She has many CDs, among them Highland Heart, Shady Grove and Shall We Gather as well as numerous volumes of harp arrangements and several instructional videos. Though she makes her home in Wisconsin, she spends a good deal of the year touring both as a solo artist and with other performers.. Over his almost 40 years of playing whistle and flute, Brett has taught flute and whistle in programs such as the Grand Canyon Celtic Arts Academy and the Association Irlandaise in Paris, France. Brett is at equally at home on stage in performance as he is playing for dancing. In addition, he is a baroque flutist and World Language Education Specialist. He recently co-founded Isteach is Amach, an international LGBTQ collective of trad musicians, singers and dancers.
