Kate Robins - Harpist

Unique, dynamic harp playing like you've never heard it before! Designing and making her own exquisite harps, and with "rings on her fingers and bells on her toes" her music has a mesmeric, individual sound.

Using classical, folk and Latin Jazz influences, she arranges and composes music that holds her audiences spellbound with fascinating historical anecdotes which span cultures from the dawn of civilisation right up to her present day Dales roots.
Playing modern and period harp she has costumes to match any occasion.

“Magnificent - she has to be seen to be believed” BBC Television

"Hard to imagine its just one woman and her harp making that sound"  Jenny Murray, BBC Radio

She DOES NOT use any backing material whatsoever - the sounds you hear are all created by her including the drumming. Wearing Rings on her fingers and bells on her ankles she is able to produce a mesmerising sound which is a pleasure to hear.

Kate Robins - Harpist Feedback

When she plays there is a Lifeforce, a vitality which travels through the harp and is translated into action. A unique sound like you have never heard before timeless and unique


Hi Geoff, apologies for the delay in replying. We were both delighted with the harpist. Her playing was beautiful and really complimented what we set out to achieve. Her repertoire was broad and our wedding guests were so impressed.

Just to say a HUGE thank you for playing on Saturday, we had so many comments about how beautiful the music was; it added to a most wonderful day. Thanks again, take care.
