Alex Jenkins talks to Sara about the album and the Cornwall Harp Centre on Saturday from 12 noon and 12 midnight and on Monday from 6pm.
Sarah Deere-Jones is a classically trained harpist with a huge variety of musical experience and interests. Whilst still performing on concert harp, she has in recent years been concentrating on traditional music, playing Celtic, English and her own compositions for gut strung and wire strung Celtic harps.
She is known for her virtuoso playing on lever harp and her compositions are sold to harpists all over the world, and she is also in demand as a teacher and performer at harp festivals and for on-line coaching internationally.
Sarah is director of the Cornwall Harp Centre where she coaches harp students from all over the world, in both classical and traditional techniques. She is fascinated by psychology and the learning process and believes that it is as much about confidence and self belief than about playing the instrument itself. As someone who sufferred dreadfully from nerves and self doubt as a student, she is well placed to understand the problems of nervous learners. Her courses have proved to be immensely popular and she has ‘on-line’ students from all over the world.
