Ashley Toman and Mollie Marcuson (replacing original harpist Patricia Kline) will be showcasing arrangements of Metallica songs from their album "Harptallica - A Tribute" as well as previews from a followup release due out in the Fall.

Harptallica has had performances featured on WGN-TV and various FOX network stations across the country, and have hailed as both the "pacifiers of hardened rock enthusiasts" and the "harbingers of metal to the classical community."

In bringing their harps on the road, Harptallica hopes both to introduce audiences to new and original combinations of musical styles and to of course give tribute to a band they were individually introduced to as a 'musical giant': Metallica.

Apocalyptica is a LOT better. And cellos are more metal than harps.
