Girls 4 Harps formed in London in 2000 to perform, record, create and commission new music. They are now the world’s leading harp quartet and have been heard in hundreds of venues and festivals in the UK and across Europe.
Keziah Thomas, Angharad Wyn Jones, Harriet Adie and Eleanor Turner are the four international award-winning harpists who together make 4 Girls 4 Harps. In the past few years, they have performed live on BBC Radio 2’s Friday Night is Music Night, S4C’s Noson Lawen and Wedi 7 and were part of the opening celebrations of London’s new multi-concert hall complex, King’s Place.
Their latest CD, ‘Fireworks and Fables’, has been regularly broadcast on Classic FM and BBC Radio 3 and admirers of their music include the music industry’s legendary critic and presenter Paul Gambaccini, Classic FM presenter David Mellor, and former BBC Radio 3 presenter Stephanie Hughes.
Many original works have been commissioned by the group including pieces by British composers Edward Longstaff and Edward Watson as well as original works by the group’s two composers Eleanor Turner and Harriet Adie. They were also invited to perform the World première of Edward Cowie’s ‘Nymphaeas’ at the Warehouse, London in 2008.
4 Girls 4 Harps enjoy performing and recording with other musicians and have collaborated with musicians from every genre including male voice choirs, solo singers and internationally renowned Tabla player Sanju Sahai for a recording and performances of Edward Longstaff’s Saraswati.
