Recently, I performed with Hitomi Akutsu (http://moriharp.blog.fc2.com) at the Silk Road Film Festival 2015 (http://silkroadfilmfestival.com) opening ceremony at the Chester Beatty Library. During the ceremony, the acclaimed cinematographer, Vittorio Storaro was presented with a lifetime award. We performed a selection of Japanese and Irish folk and popular tunes.
