Talented Harpist Gives Christmas A Swashbuckling Twist With This Epic Mashup.

Harpist Kristan Toczko playing her instrument.

When it comes to musicians, Kristan Toczko is a bit of an anomaly. In fact, you probably won’t find another classically-trained harpist who’s likely to Rick Roll her fans when they’re least expecting it!

Based in Ontario, Canada, Kristan is a professional harpist who is as inclined to pluck out a theme song from a commercial or popular sitcom as she is to play classical music. She’s grown a large social media following by mashing up songs that don’t ordinarily go together, and the best part is that she takes requests!

When a fan asked Kristan to mash up “Carol of the Bells” and the theme from “Pirates of the Caribbean,” she really rose to the challenge. We never thought these two songs would go together, but it turned out to be one of the musician’s favorite arrangements yet. Watch it below, and don’t forget to share.
