"na Skylark," which simply means "the Skylark" in Irish, is a duo devoted to the traditional music of Ireland, Scottland, England, Wales, and Brittany on Ireland's national instruments: the Irish harp and the Irish uilleann ("elbow") pipes. na Skylark weaves these instruments and others – including the Appalachian mountain dulcimer, the melodica, Irish flutes and whistles, the Irish fiddle, guitar, and various percussion – into a tapestry of sound and feeling that's truly unique. Join us for a wee while as Lorinda Jones (harp, dulcimer) and Cathy Wilde (pipes, whistles) share the music, history, songs and stories of the Celtic lands and send your spirits soaring. Na Skylark is a member of the Kentucky Arts Council, Performing Arts Directory.
In recognition of artistic excellence ,Na Skylark, has been selected to participate in the Performing Artists Directory, a program of the Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency, which is supported by state tax dollars and federal funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Lorinda and Cathy are occasionally joined by fiddler, Larry Green. Larry’s experience playing and teaching Irish fiddle at home and abroad, as well as accompanying Irish step and ceili dancers, contributes to a trio with a perfect blend of authentic Irish music, played much the way you’d expect to find it in the most out-of-the-way shebeen.
