Today's video features a beautiful folk song called "Black is the colour of my true love's hair" performed by singer Ariane Rees. She plays a 34-string lever harp to accompany the song and creates a lovely atmospheric sound.
Ariane Rees studied opera in Germany before moving to London and doing a postgraduate course at the Royal Academy of Music and obtaining a Recital Diploma. She has performed medieval to contemporary music all over the world and now lives in Hastings where she has a growing singing teaching practice. You can find all upcoming concerts and information about singing and piano lessons on her website. In recent years Ariane has recorded several well-received CDs with medieval group The Telling!
