Camille and Kennerly are identical twins that both started to play the harp at a young age.

They were both classically trained at Universities in harp performance. They have created original songs and have performed all over the world.

The sisters stated they “have a passion and flair for arranging and performing rock, metal, and soundtrack music for Harp Duet … Camille and Kennerly have created a unique niche for themselves: playing rock and metal music using only their two harps.”

Camille and Kennerly took on the rock classic of “Stairway to Heaven” by Led Zeppelin with their harps. They did not create their own unique version but played the song on their harps to the original version.

It sounds almost impossible for “Stairway to Heaven” to be played on the harps and have it sound the same, but these two professionals do it beautifully.

The Harp Twins performed the song at the bottom of the Grand Staircase in the “Place de la Musique” of the Sanfilippo Family Estate and Museum in Illinois.

A perfect location for the classic song.

The rock song sounds so delicate and beautiful on the harp, that one can forget it is originally Led Zeppelin that created the song.
