Founder and Assistant Director
"As part of Vaguely Sunny Promotions, I was delighted to become part of the team as Assistant Director."
"I am from a music partnership called Vaguely Sunny. We have been promoting folk, roots and acoustic music on the Isle of Wight since 1996. I have always loved the sound of the harp, and so I was delighted to accept when asked by Anna to be part of the original team."
"I love being a small part of such a passionate team of harp enthusiasts. The Festival is run with passion and dedication every year and I am thrilled that I can offer something to help this great team out."
"We were having coffee in Michelangelo's one day in 2014 when Anna told us about her dream of a harp festival. Anna was determined to make it a reality, and her excitement was contagious. She needed help with producing the programme and we offered. Simple as that. It has been great being part of the team from the beginning and watching "Harp on Wight" grow with each year."

"As Chair of Ryde Arts for 18 years I am proud of its aim to offer participatory opportunities to experience and create in a variety of art forms, by joining the Harp on Wight team my eyes and ears are opened to new and exciting possibilities which can enrich the town and the wider Island."
"Harps have been my passion for over twenty years. I love both playing and listening to many genres of harp music and am particularly drawn to harp as therapy. "
"It has been a pleasure to join the Harp on Wight Team . After attending many years in the audience it has become obvious that Anna’s vision ,with the help of Vic King and a small group of volunteers ,have put Ryde on the world map for hosting an amazing harp festival with musicians coming to play from all over the globe."
"Having always enjoyed the Harp on Wight Concerts I was delighted to join the organising team this year.
It is such a joyous festival to attend, harp music at its very best here in Ryde, which has put the Isle of Wight firmly on the International Music stage."
