About Steph

A harper and singer, I work as a performer, music creator, teacher and workshop leader.  I started out as a classical musician but now specialise in folk and traditional music via an early music degree. I’ve always loved composition and arrangement and have developed my own musical landscape to explore. If you’d like to hear more, go here: www.stephwest.co.uk

 

I’ve worked with a variety of bands over the years, the best known being the British Paraorchestra, including televised performances at the Paralympics Closing Ceremony, The Queen’s Speech 2012 at Buckingham Palace and Katara, the Royal Opera house of Qatar.

 

Recently I’ve been working with Irish / world flautist Jacquelyn Hynes, touring her acclaimed album “Silver and Wood”. This has taken us to America as part of Folk Alliance International and a spring time tour in the north of England.
