A harper, singer and composer, Steph has a love of dancing rhythms, vivid chords and a free flowing melody. You may hear her performing solo, playing in a variety of bands and projects, from the British Paraorchestra to Emily and the Tunesmiths. Steph also teaches harp and traditional music, and is involved with the Irish and English folk and harp communities in the south east of England. She helps run youth folk arts project Shooting Roots, which is 21 this year.

In 2012 Steph joined the British Paraorchestra, performing with them at the Paralympics Closing Ceremony and the Queen’s Speech. The Paraorchestra has recently travelled Qatar and performed in the Katara Opera House.

In the same year Steph also wrote and released an EP, The Mermaid. She’s slowly working on new material for an album.

Steph also plays for special events and weddings, please see www.stephanie-west.co.uk for more details.
