The brief version:
Gillian is probably best known as a harp player but has long been passionate about songs and arrangement and in her time in Glasgow, Scotland, she has been fortunate to collaborate with a broad and inspiring range of musicians. This has meant that she has been able to pursue her love of traditional music, which was the style of music which fostered her desire to make a life in music, but also to enjoy the diversity and stylistic breadth that makes Glasgow a world renowned hub for music, art and the cross fertilisation of cultures. In her performing life so far she has been playing The Duplets, State Broadcasters, Henry and Fleetwood, De Rosa, Agnes Obel, Pictish Trail and others. Over the last few years she has been focusing on composition and arrangement and is excited to launch a new album "Together with Yourself at Sea Level" in autumn 2023.
