Described as 'exceptionally virtuosic and sensitive', South African harpist Jacqueline Kerrod is perfectly at home across multiple genres and performs throughout the United States and Europe.
As the creator of Harps Uncovered! Jacqueline brings her passion for crossing musical boundaries to the foreground. Through her arrangements of familiar tunes, as well as her original tunes, one experiences the harp in new and exciting ways. One of the highlights of the show is the electric harp that fills the
space like a full band! Joining her this season is superb vocalist Hannah Sumner who has “an absolutely incredible voice” - BBC Radio.
Jacqueline has been touring internationally with composer and multi-reedist Anthony Braxton, both in duo and as part of his ZIM music ensemble. She was a founding member of the genre-bending duo Addi & Jacq, who were winners of NYC's Battle of the Boroughs in 2015, and recently toured her show, ‘Harps Uncovered’ featuring vocalist Hannah Sumner through 12 states of the US. Currently, she is working on a solo project further exploring her love of improvisation, songwriting, and use of electronics
to augment and manipulate sound.
Her debut solo album titled 17 Days in December releases in 2021.
