About

From the National Cathedral to the Australian bush, Eve's performances adventure through our rich heritage of music and tales. Simple, direct, and lots of fun, her work sparkles with pure but powerful moving impact of time-honored traditions, to captivate and inspire audiences of all ages today, just as they’ve done for centuries. She’s been a performing singer, storyteller, harpist and multi-instrumentalist for decades, a passionate collector forever. She’s toured throughout Virginia, around the US, and abroad, and pioneered University of Virginia Health System’s Musician-in-Residence program as a therapeutic musician at patients’ bedsides

“When Eve Watters plays the harp, the willows weep. When she sings, the fishes dance. And when she tells stories, people beg for more." 
MidAtlantic Storytellers Conference

"Watters' voice, deft and light as a butterfly, dances above the acoustic accompaniment
Parents' Choice Magazine

 “The audience was certainly enthralled…What a fun way to bring history alive!”
Virginia Museum of Fine Arts

Performances

Eve presents a wide range of offerings, from thought-provoking grown-up concerts, to soothing solo Celtic harp, to lively participatory sessions for the young at heart, all improvisationally tailored to each occasion. Concerts are informal and naturally crafted with harp and voice, along with banjo, Native American flute, concertina, autoharp, or dulcimer. Listeners travel the centuries and escape to a “time when there was no time”, in an extensive repertoire of enchanting tales-with-a-twist, songs in a dozen languages, plus legend, lore, and lots of glorious harp music.

Virginia Fireside From backwoods porches and high-style parlors alike comes this multi-instrumental presentation of carefully researched, lovingly-preserved, authentic Virginia music and tales, lively and interactive in tone.

Pleasures of the Harp portrays the beauty and fascinating lore of harp throughout history, and around the world, with stories, period music, and rare Gaelic, Renaissance, neo-Celtic and double-strung harps.
