Nancy Hurrell performs on a variety of historical harps from a Renaissance double-row arpa doppia to a rare c.1820 Egan Irish harp. Nancy is a harp consultant for the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and she presents gallery talks and records on harps in the collection. Classically trained with a masters degree in harp performance, she has taught early harp at the Boston Conservatory, and she currently teaches students in the Brandeis University Early Music Ensemble. Nancy has appeared with several early music ensembles including Cappella Clausura, Ensemble Musica Humana, Exsultemus, Musicians of the Old Post Road, Ensemble Trinitas, and Renaissonics, with whom she recorded a CD for WGBH radio and PRI’s Sound and Spirit program. She was a presenter on Irish radio’s RTÈ Lyric Feature program along with her groundbreaking CD, ‘The Egan Irish Harp,’ and lecture-performances abroad include the Royal Irish Academy (Dublin), Birr Castle (Co. Offaly) and the Royal Academy of Music (London). Her performances at music festivals include Boston Early Music Festival, Amherst Early Music Festival, SoHIP Series, and UK Harp Festival (London). On classical harp, Nancy was harpist for Tea at the Ritz in Boston for five years.
