The Peacock Sisters, a harpist duo gave an instrumental concert at the Beatty Heritage House on Aug. 15.
The free event was sponsored by the Rimbey Municipal Library.
“I would say that there is a reason they portray angels as playing harps,” said Jean Keetch, library manager.
“It was absolutely amazing,” she said, adding that the sisters, Rachel and Talitha Peacock, are both very talented.
“Harp music is a genre unto itself.”
Rachel plays flute and harp, and Talitha plays the harp.
Four of the songs the ladies played were composed by Rachel, says Keetch.
The concert was well attended, with about 34 people.
The sisters are originally from Rimbey and currently attending school in Toronto.
The Peacock sisters performed at a library event a number of years ago, and they would definitely have them back again, says Keetch.
You can hear some of the sisters’ music at thepeacocks.bandcamp.com.
The library wanted to have another instrumental concert after a classical piano performance back in January was well received.
The library sponsors at least three concerts a year.
“Libraries are no longer just about books,” stated Keetch.
These days libraries strive to being culture and different experiences into their communities, she added.
The next event the library is sponsoring is a dinner and dance featuring dance band Blackwater Crude on Nov. 23.
