You can make a marketing opportunity out of anything!

I randomly sold a CD to the man behind the post office counter today. He happened to notice that I was sending a letter to that most hallowed of institutions, the Musicians' Union, and asked about what sort of music I played and whether I had ever recorded any cds. Not one to pass up an opportunity, I of course told him all about 4 Girls 4 Harps and how great we were and sure enough he has asked me to bring one in for him the next time I'm posting letters!

Its amazing how my assumptions about how irrelevant the people one meets in one's daily life are have been turned upside down by this. I guess that is what PR and marketing are all about - making the most of every opportunity that comes along and showing a real interest in everyone no matter what job or part of the world they come from. Next stop Tescos and world domination.....


We are very excited to be doing a showcase for Universal Records (amongst others) on 8 April 2009! Its been a bit frantic getting everything organised for it as we only found out about it last week, but we're on schedule and can't wait to show everyone what we can do.

New CD

Our new CD 'Fireworks and Fables' is now available and we're really excited. Its full of fantastic arrangements of music by composers such as Handel, Saint-Saens and Ravel, and also original compositions by our very own Eleanor Turner and Harriet Adie. As if that wasn't enough, we have also collaborated with internationally renowned Tabla player Sanju Sahai on our flagship piece Saraswati and added a jazz element with drums and double bass for our arrangement of Gershwin's Summertime.
