Linda North - Harpist

Whether it's music during the ceremony, or soothing background music for your drinks reception or wedding breakfast, she will provide the perfect music, ensuring a touch of class at your celebration.

The harp is a popular choice for providing music at all types of occasion. She frequently plays for civil wedding ceremonies, as well as traditional church weddings, and also plays for birthday celebrations, anniversaries and corporate functions.

The harp is a good alternative when there is no piano or organ available, and is also much smaller and cheaper than a string quartet or other ensemble!

She began playing the harp at the age of 9, and at 12 won a music Scholarship to study harp with Brynmore Williams at Wells Cathedral School. She later studied there with Ann Griffiths and Ruth Faber. Whilst at the school, she performed regularly as a soloist and chamber musician, and in 1996 appeared on television accompanying a choir in the Final of the BBC Sing Out competition. In 1997 she took part in the World Harp Competition in Cardiff. In 1999 she won a Scholarship to study at the Royal Academy of Music in London. She returned to Cardiff in 2000 to perform with Cliff Richard and Bryn Terfel in the Millennium Songs of Praise, filmed at the Millennium Stadium.

Since 2002 she has performed frequently with professional orchestras including Wedmore Opera and Somerset Opera Companies, and has performed widely as a soloist throughout the South West. She has often collaborated with outstanding flautist Mary Owen. Together they have given Duo recitals and have performed for BBC Live Music Now.
