Magazine features!

It has been a busy Autumn for us this year with lots of concerts - Machynlleth, Two Moors Festival, Great Bowden and Chobham, to name a few - and we have also been featured in two big name industry magazines.

Back in the August issue of Classical Music magazine we were one of the ensembles written about in their cover story on young all-girl groups setting the Classical world on fire. It was very interesting to be asked so many questions about how we find work within the industry and how we use the fact that there are four of us to our advantage - in this case big is definitely better!

We were also given a two page spread in the October/November issue of Muso (see above) where we were grilled on every aspect of being harpists and the challanges of playing in a group with four identical instruments. We hope that this might enlighten people a bit about what we do and how we see the group progressing in the future (and also find out a bit more about what we are like away from the harp!).

Unfortunately we are having a bit of trouble uploading the article from Classical Music magazine, but for any of you who would like a read, you can order back copies from the magazine's website. When we get a bit more 'technological' then we will have another go at uploading it.
