Hello and welcome to my website. I hope you enjoy looking around and find everything that you are looking for.  I have lots of information about weddings, teaching and also have a number of tracks for you to listen to.

Here’s some information about me…

I grew up in the west coast of Scotland and began playing the Scottish harp when I discovered my love of traditional music.

I went on to study pedal harp at St Mary’s Music School in Edinburgh and then at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, with Eira Lynn Jones, where I gained my Bachelor of Music Degree in the Harp.

I enjoy a busy freelance career based in Edinburgh, performing with many distinguished groups ranging greatly in genre from the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, to pop groups such as Belle and Sebastian and The Fratellis. Chamber music is one of my most exciting musical pastimes and I formed my duo ‘Hoot’ with flautist Emma Wilkins in 2005. We released our first album ‘The Garden of Adonis’ in 2010 and continue to have great success.

I am pedal harp and clarsach tutor at my old school – St Mary’s Music School, where my pupils have gone on to be successful young harpists.

My most recent project is a partnership with my previous teacher, Eira Lynn Jones. Together, we form the harp duo ‘Symmetry’.  This looks to be an exciting adventure, so watch this space!
