Jessica Burton - Harpist for Weddings and Events

Edinburgh International Harp Festival 2017

I had an amazing time teaching at this years Edinburgh Harp Festival. My course in Scottish Music from the Islands went really well. As well as learning tunes from Orkney, Shetland and Skye, participants enjoyed some island produce – cheese, oatcakes, fudge and puffin poo! Thanks to all the lovely people who came along to learn new tunes.

As well as playing with another 60 young harpists they performed a solo slot in the middle. Well done girls!
