Welcome to HARP at HOME online harp workshops



I began HARP at HOME in April 2020 following as a result of the covid 19 crisis. I found I suddenly had a near empty diary as many of my teaching and performing trips were cancelled. I really wanted a way of still connecting with the harp community around the world and well I really enjoyed having the goal every week of creating new online content.

I’ve been so pleased with how  series 1-3  of HARP at HOME have been received. I’ve had well over a thousand downloads of the music from harpists throughout the world.

Part 1 of Series 4 (4 weeks) will begin on Monday the 29th November 2021 with  and  will “go live” at 7pm. Part 2 will begin in January 2022. If you don’t catch it at live at 7pm, don’t worry, you’ll be able to watch it in your time, as the workshops will remain online for the foreseeable future.

I am incredibly grateful to have received funding from the  Tasgadh Traditional Arts fund (by Creative Scotland) which means HARP at HOME IS GOING ON THE ROAD! For the 4th series I will be introducing your to the places, people and organisations that have been part of my journey as a Scottish harp player. I’m so excited as all of this will help give you context to the wonderful music we have learned so far on our HARP at HOME journey

I hope you enjoy learning the tunes and I look forward to connecting with you!
