The harp’s heavenly sounds are typically associated with classical or ethereal fantasy music. But musician MaĆ«l Isaac proves rock and alternative are perfectly suited to the sit-down string instrument too. Listen up as he performs classics from David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Joy Division, The Pixies, The White Stripes, and more.
