What do you do when you fall in love with playing folk harp but there's no tradition in your country?
Explore the music, adapt it for harp and share it with everyone!

Steph West is bringing alive the joy and energy of playing English traditional on the harp through lively jigs, cheeky hornpipes, melancholy slow airs and evocative songs. This project celebrates the rich and varied styles of English traditional music whilst placing the rippling sound of harp at the forefront. Featuring expansive piano accordion from Tom Evans (Understory, Shooting Roots) and vibrant fiddle from Matt Coatsworth (Boldwood, Warleggan Village Band), Steph invites you to geek out on England's musical traditions whilst being swept along with the flow of the show.

xford fol favourites the Owl Light Trio are playing for the second half of the concert, playing their imaginative and inventive arrangements based on tunes from Ireland, the UK and Brittany.
