In 2019 Performers, News and Updates by Roots & Blues

Originally from Brittany, Tristan Govic was only six years old when he began learning the Celtic harp at the Conservatoire of Traditional Music of Soye (Plœmeur). The attraction to music will never leave him.
During his studies he gained numerous prizes and nominations that emphasize the recognition of a talented and accomplished musician. Performing on international stages, critics pronounce him as one of the leading Celtic harpers today.

During his time living in Ireland, then in Scotland – where he was appointed Celtic harp instructor within the City of Glasgow – he developed a deep sense for Celtic music both in a solo repertoire or with big names of the music world. For the 30th anniversary of the Edinburgh International Harp Festival (2011), the harpist Corrina Hewat invited him to take part in the performing of her masterpiece The Song of the Oak and The Ivy with Mary Macmaster, Wendy Stewart, Heather Downie and Bill Taylor.
