Find out more about local harpist, Helen Barley Helen Barley is a harpist and singer based in Kinver. She graduated the Royal Manchester College of Music and later did post-graduate studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

She tells us: "My work with a group of autistic children led me to buy a small harp as an experiment. Both the children and I completely fell in love with the harp and so a period of intensive training followed, including lessons from some of the country's top harpists. I now play and enjoy singing at weddings and other functions. My style of singing and playing covers many different genres of music, offering a wide range of styles in my repertoire. I also teach harp and am the director of the successful 12 – strong Kinver Harp Ensemble."

The harp is a great addition to any wedding and can be used for the ceremony, drinks reception or evening entertainment. Helen is dedicated to giving the best performance possible and has even braved the cold weather to perform in the snow!
