Aryeh Frankfurter’s musical endeavors began at the age of three when he undertook classical training on the violin. His progress enabled him to study under various master violinists, including concert master of the Chicago Symphony. He participated both as a violinist and violist in a series of chamber music ensembles under the tutelage of internationally renown cellist, Bonnie Hampton, pianist Nathan Schwartz, teachers at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and the late violinist Ann Crowden of the Crowden School of Music in Berkeley, CA. Aryeh’s musical development led him to explore various ethnic and international musical genres, particularly Celtic folk music. At the age of fifteen, Aryeh was introduced to the Celtic harp, an instrument which has become the focal point of his musical inspiration and expression. Over the interceding years Aryeh taught himself to play a variety of instruments including electric violin, viola, cello, guitar, cittern, mandolin, lap dulcimer and hammered dulcimer, bowed and plucked psaltry, penny whistle, baroque flute, recorder, percussion, and more recently, the Swedish nyckelharpa. He has eighteen albums and two books to his credit, and tours full time as a solo artist with Lisa Lynne, Patrick Ball, and the Windham Hill Winter Solstice Tours.
