Known for her symbiotic relationship with her instrument and her ability to wed performance practice with the recorded literary tradition, Ann is the first modern harper * to interpret fingernail and damping techniques detailed in the Welsh Robert ap Huw harp manuscript; * to adapt piobaireachd's highly ornamented variations to the clairseach; * to interpret and perform repertoire of Denis O'Hampsey from the original Bunting manuscripts in Belfast (also using a replica of O'Hampsey's instrument and O'Hampsey's tuning); * to interpret and perform the compositions of Cormac MacDermott, an Irish harper at the Elizabethan court; * to use monofilament gold as well as silver strings; * to establish a plausible role for the clairseach in the performance of Gaelic poetry.
