Born in Scotland of Welsh parents, Elinor is a hybrid of two Celtic cultures and her love of the harp was nurtured by Meinir Heulyn and Isobel Meiras. At 19, Elinor won the Clarsach Society Young Composer award. In 2014 she completed her degree in Scottish Music at the RCS and released her debut CD Kaleidoscope alongside her first book of original tunes. At present she is studying Composition and Performance at the RWCMD. In 2015, Elinor won the prestigious Interceltique Trophée de Camac Harpe in Lorient, Brittany. Elinor is driven by her determination that the Clarsach be regarded as an instrument in its own right. A natural teacher and performer she combines a passion for the instrument with her deeply held conviction that music should be available for all.
