Harpist, composer and music teacher Merit Zloch sees herself in the tradition of the itinerant harp players of the 19th and early 20th century. She travels - just as they did - with her harp through Europe and wants to charm people with her music – original compositions as well as arrangements of historical dance music. Merit Zloch plays in bands almost as long as she plays harp and is constantly fascinated by the interplay between musicians. She likes to arrange und develop pieces together with her band colleagues and to improvise. Furthermore she researches on historical dance manuscripts and organises musicians meetings, bals and instrumental workshop weekends.
