Clouds Harp Quartet: 10th Anniversary Concert
Angelina Egerton, Elfair Grug, Rebecca Mills, Elinor Nicholson and Esther Swift
Tonight, we welcome a uniquely original group whose genre-defying music has delighted and astonished audiences for the past 10 years.
The music presented tonight is all composed by founding member Esther Swift, who draws on many influences including Scottish folk music, minimalism, world music and improvisation. Remarkably, Esther’s compositional process does not include the scribing of her music, and so CLOUDS learn their music by ear and perform it all from memory.
CLOUDS have released four albums: Clouds, Water, Golden Light and Up She Rises, which were all released alongside UK-wide tours.
Performance highlights include a special commission from Manchester Jazz Festival, Celtic Connections, Manchester Midday Concert Series at the Bridgewater Hall, Swaledale Festival and a performance to celebrate the opening of Moat Brae National Centre for Children's Literature. Upcoming 2021 appearances include the Dutch Harp Festival and the World Harp Congress.
