The Harp Twins cover Smoke

Twin sisters Camille and Kennerly Kitt, better knows as the Harp Twins, made their name by playing covers of rock tunes and music from the movies arranged for two harps. And being very easy on the eye doesn’t hurt either. 😉 Their latest instalment is Smoke on the Water:

Frankly, this one leaves me a bit cold. I guess some tunes just don’t translate well onto acoustical harp. Compare it to their take on Iron Maiden’s Fear of the Dark, which IMHO is pretty awesome:

Thanks to Dave Hodgkinson for the info.

    It gets around so much before it reaches this pot, no longer is it actually news by then. Okay, the Stepford factor does come to mind with this lot. 😀

    Musically speaking, they are both interesting versions, maintaining the melody & they are playing ‘traditional’ instruments also.
    Good to hear. “Fear of the dark, fear of the dark, I have a constant fear that something is always near”………Cheers.

    ‘A200’ would have been an interesting choice.

    You re right Michiel.

    And I m so bored with hearing SOTW, in whatever version!!!!

    I cant stand it that the song is known almost vby everyone on earth but they dont know dipshit about what the DP bands and offshoots made besides that.

    It is also masshysteria.

    My sister hated my music but years later when SOTW had become a mainstream song she smiled and said oh yeah, I know that song from when we were young.

    Another suggestion (and quite suitable for this instrument): ‘Wring That Neck’.
