Fiona Hosford

Meet the Host, Fiona

Gaining extensive experience performing throughout the UK and abroad for over 20 years, Fiona Hosford LSRM BA (Hons) is a gifted and experienced harpist based in the South East of England. Fiona also studied the piano, violin, and singing but when she began the Harp at age 6 it soon became apparent that the other instruments were secondary to the Harp.

Fiona enjoys putting the aspects of her well-traveled experiences into her vast repertoire, which ranges from Classical through to her love of Jazz. With her varied repertoire, she has delighted a wide range of clients with her soothing and uplifting music and her statuesque gold harp has added an air of refinement and relaxation.

Often described as the most friendly, ‘normal’ Harpist about, with a strong sense of humour and a sympathetic musical ear, Fiona ensures that your musical tastes are adhered to and is flexible and thoughtful in her approach.

    This was an uplifting event. The host was all-inclusive and made you feel the pleasure in performing was as great as the pleasure she gave to the audience. Thank you.

    Fiona is a joy to listen to and to watch, as a performer and as a person - a natural communicator and a generous sharer of knowledge and experience. Her choice of pieces is beautifully eclectic. A bit of magic all round. Encore, please! As often as you can...
