Phala Tracy - Harpist, composer, improviser, arranger, teacher, poet, deep listener. Phala is a versatile performer. From classical to pop, ragtime to free improvisation, she pushes the boundary of what one has come to expect from the pedal harp. A lover of nonsense, many of her songs and poems are imbued with a spirit of nonsensical whimsy. Her first album, “Critter Songs” is a collection of playful, imaginative songs for children. Phala lives and works in Minneapolis, MN where she teaches harp at the MacPhail Center for Music and Gustavus Adolphus College. BM Oberlin Conservatory of Music, MFA California Institute of the Arts.
