We’re thrilled to welcome 4 Girls 4 Harps back to the Festival, celebrating their 20th Anniversary.

Since their formation in 2000, 4 Girls 4 Harps have been heard in numerous venues and festivals in the UK and across Europe, delighting audiences with their dynamic performances and innovative repertoire.
