CLOUDS Harp Quartet are going on tour in summer 2017!

This is the biggest tour we've taken on so far and we are so excited to be playing all over Great Britain.

As we're sure you can imagine, travelling with four concert grand pedal harps is not an easy task. We are asking for your support to cover our travel costs while we are on the road. This may include hiring a van to take all four instruments.

We absolutely love the music that Esther writes for us and we feel that it deserves to reach the largest audience possible. Some of the smaller venues we play in cannot afford to pay us a fee for performing, so we are relying on ticket sales. If not enough tickets are sold, we are out of pocket, and we won't be able to continue touring in the future.

Your support would take a great deal of this worry away, leaving us to focus on performing and bringing this beautiful music to life.

Risks and challenges

One of the main challenges of this project is transporting four pedal harps over 1,500 miles over the course of two weeks.

Our instruments are worth around £20,000 each and are fragile, so we need to be very careful with them when moving around.

Travel costs of either hiring a van or taking four estate cars mount up very quickly, and that is why we are asking for your help.
