Harptallica Announce Dates for European Tour

You read that right, metal fans; Harptallica, the all-Harp tribute to Metallica from Baton Rouge, LA will be gently plucking it up to the European masses.

Harpists Ashley Toman and Mollie Marcuson, collectively known as "Harptallica," will be showcasing arrangements of Metallica songs from their album "Harptallica - A Tribute" as well as previews from a planned followup release during their inaugural tour of Denmark, Germany, Holland, Belgium and the United Kingdom.

The duo formed in 2006 after Toman, a Eastman School of Music graduate student arranged Fade to Black for harp, which spawned a full-length CD of Metallica covers released in 2007 to select friends and family. Word spread and their CD was sold en masse, leading to live shows and US tours. They have also extended their metal repertoire to include Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden and Megadeth cuts as well as their own metal-inspired original material.
