Diana Rowan

Born in Ireland, Diana Rowan has lived, performed and studied on the East Coast, in Europe and the Middle East before settling in Berkeley, California, where she received her Master of Music (MM) degree. Each country left a strong impression on Diana's music, which interweaves Celtic, Eastern European, Near Eastern and classical arts and mythology.  Besides performing everywhere from the Australian Harp Festival to Washington DC's Smithsonian to Eastern European cathedrals, Diana teaches to advanced level and can be heard on many CDs and soundtracks for film and TV, including her three solo albums Panta Rhei, The Bright Knowledge, and the upcoming As Above, So Below.  She splits her time between the San Francisco Bay Area and Eastern Europe, pursuing a PhD in Music Theory (focusing on world harp composition techniques) at the National Academy of Music in Sofia, Bulgaria. Diana believes strongly in the healing power of harp music and plays often in hospitals and healing centers.
