Elizabeth Jane still continues to delight and entrance her audience, performing an array of music that spans over five centuries. She is also the world’s only silent movie harpist, having created accompaniments for early film and TV. Despite her performances being broadcast across BBC Radio amongst other radio stations worldwide, Killerton feels like family to Elizabeth.
How many years have you played the harp concert at Killerton?

You’ve played many times, what do you enjoy most about playing at Killerton?
The romance of the Christmas decorations and the intimate atmosphere in the music room create an aura of the past. It's really transporting. It feels like family. The house is so alive.
Is there anything new / exciting / different happening at this year’s concert that you’d like to promote?
Oh yes - I'm playing an incredible Flamenco piece this year. It's absolutely sensational on the harp, and thrillingly exciting to play.
