CLOUDS Harp Quartet

Angelina Egerton
Elfair Grug
Rebecca Mills
Elinor Nicholson 
Esther Swift

CLOUDS is a uniquely original harp quartet; their genre-defying music astonishes audiences, and challenges traditional stereotypes of the harp. 

Their music is composed by founding member Esther Swift, who draws on many influences including: Scottish folk music, minimalism, world music and improvisation. Remarkably, Esther’s compositional process does not include the scribing of her music, and so CLOUDS learn their music by ear, and perform it all from memory. 

CLOUDS have released four albums: Clouds, Water, Golden Light and Up She Rises, which were all released alongside UK wide tours. Their discography shows an impressive development of their musical ideas, with their music evolving evermore complex and inventive soundworlds.
