About Eleanor and Gregor

Eleanor and Gregor are a Glasgow-based harp and percussion duo, blending traditional with contemporary as they aim to challenge perceptions of the harp and push the boundaries of the traditional music scene. Drawing on their shared experiences in classical and jazz music, along with contemporary percussion and vocals, they form a dynamic and innovative new duo. Danny Kyle award-winners at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections this year, they have recently been selected as the UK Harp Association’s Emerging Artists for 2024. Fresh from their showcase at the Edinburgh International Harp Festival, they release their debut EP ‘Let No Man’ on 26.04.24. Their music has been featured on Celtic Music Radio and Fatea Records’ Showcase Sessions.
