This Celtic harpist

At the age of 15 she began playing the Scottish harp and was immediately accepted into Splore, the traditional music course at the Aberdeen International Youth Festival. Having graduated in 2008 from The Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama with a first class honors BA Scottish music, studying harp with Wendy Stewart and piano with Mary McCarthy and James Ross, she went on to complete a postgraduate diploma in Scottish music performance, under the guidance of Corrina Hewat.

She has travelled extensively in Scotland and her music has taken her as far afield as Germany, Demark, Latvia and New York, playing for dignitaries like Jack McConnell and Prince Albert of Monaco. She also provided backing music for Tom Contiís rendition of ĎA Manís A Maní during Tartan week in America in 2006, and returned in 2009. She also has an interest in composition and Scottish history, folklore and the roots of the songs and tunes in her repertoire. She has 5 years teaching experience, both in schools and with individual pupils.

This harpistís playing has been described as Ďvibrant and thoughtful in her interpretation of traditional standardsí and audiences have commented on the purity of her voice;
