Irish musicians often joke about finding the elusive lilt in their playing — that special something that makes a tune sound truly Irish. Hannah will be the first to tell you that this lilt can always be developed further, but there is no question that she has found it in both her fiddling and singing.
While she has only called Michigan home since 2017, Harris has quickly made a name for herself in the Irish traditional music community both locally and further afield. She holds a Masters Degree in Ethnomusicology from University College of Cork, where she spent a year immersing herself in the music scene of Cork City, Ireland.
Harris’ debut solo album Tea for Tunes released in 2020, and has received international acclaim. According to Grainne McCool from Irish Music Magazine, “With a title fit for any Irish household, this is a winner from the outset.”
Hannah is no stranger to the Irish music scene: you’ll regularly find her leading a traditional Irish music session, teaching or performing at live festivals and workshops, or sharing everything she knows about fiddling with her online students and audience.
