I started playing the clarsach (Scottish harp) over 30 years ago. I had heard a family friend, Vicki Ferguson, playing and I was totally captivated! She became my teacher and later I was lucky enough to also be taught by Charlotte Peterson and Heather Yule.
Much of the music I played at first was Scottish traditional which I love, but I was really excited to try some new styles of music as I grew up. Attending the Edinburgh International Harp Festival, I was inspired by so many great harpists from all over the world.
I played with Gizzenbriggs, the traditional music group at Tain Royal Academy who played throughout much of the Highlands and even toured in Montana, USA. It was at school when I first taught the harp. After finishing school, I studied BA (Hons) New Music and Media at university in England which really broadened my horizons in music and the arts.
After lugging my tiny harp around the world, whilst working and travelling in Canada, New Zealand, Central America and Mexico, I returned to Scotland and became a Primary Teacher.
My young family and I have now settled in Kingussie, in the beautiful Cairngorm National Park, where I am enjoying performing for various events, leading workshops for all abilities, teaching for Feis and watching my private pupils achieve their goals.
