Lord of the Rings medley and gorgeous harpist (video)

I offer a mental health break for everyone in the form of a gorgeous video by ethereal twin electric harpists — “Camille and Kennerly.”

What could be better than a beautiful harp medley of themes from Lord of the Rings film soundtracks?

This is how much better: These two talented young women — who adapt and recompose the songs themselves — also dress in costumes to match the song segment. Rangers, Hobbits, Riders of Rohan, Elves — they do them all. Dunno about you folks but I think I simultaneously experienced full-on melty and nerdgasm.

They have lots of other videos on their YouTube channel which I’m probably going to spend the next few hours wasting my time on — Stairway to Heaven, Don’t Fear the Reaper, Wish You Were Here, Scarborough Fair…

Anyway, here’s the Lord of the Rings one, which is awesome.


Published professional writer and poet, Becca had a three decade career in technical writing and consulting before selling off most of her possessions in 2006 to go live at an ashram in India for 3 years. She loves literature (especially science fiction), technology and science, progressive politics, cool electronic gadgets, and perfecting Hatch green chile recipes. Fortunately for this last, Becca and her wife currently live in New Mexico. @BeccaMorn

    BTW, I’m probably not going to do a science post this weekend. The Doctor Who post took a lot out of me, plus there’s the fact my wife and I just spent the entire afternoon clearing several hundred yards of driveway of the 8″ of snow dumped on us overnight… well, I’m wiped.

    Dinner tonight is going to be potato-leek soup. And I think I’m going to spend the evening binge-watching something (haven’t decided what), huddled up under a warm blanket, with a mug of mulled cider at hand.

    I love their music (harps can sound absolutely wonderful) but am a little creeped out by the twins and their behavior or mannerisms or whatever… It’s the Stepford Harpists!

    Being a lover of horses myself, they were always my favorites in the LOTR series.

    I love how nostalgic the Riders of Rohan theme is; as longing of days gone in the past as it is uncertain of the days that lie ahead. It fits perfectly with a proud kingdom/region/race that’s balancing on the edge of a knife.

    Every time I think I’ve seen everything, I see something new. :)
