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 bal-swing project Midnight Patisserie. 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 is a mentor for OpenUp Music‘s groundbreaking youth accessibility project South West Open Youth Orchestra.

Steph plays solo harp for special events and weddings, please see www.stephanie-west.co.uk for more details. Steph also works with ceilidh band Guerilla Ceilidh as a caller. To enquire about either of these acts, please email or call Steph, or fill in the booking form here.

So I'm a bit quiet on the gig front at the moment, mostly because of exciting projects with The British Paraorchestra. Also because I'm helping to organise Wild Strings - UKHA Jazz & Popular Harp Event! Come see us in Manchester, 5 -7 Oct! ... See MoreSee Less
