Lisa Lynne’s Metal Past

Celtic Harpists Heavy Metal Roots

We all know Lisa Lynne for her serene Celtic harp music, Celtic inflections and Renaissance imagery. But Lisa has a heavy metal skeleton in her closet. She was an electric bassist in the LA Hair Band scene of the 1980s playing in groups like Matriarch (with Angels of Venice harpist Carol Tatum) and this band called Riipshaa. She let’s it rip in this video from 1984.

Look for an album of Lisa Lynne back to her pastoral mode in a vocal album with Molly Pasutti.
