About Rowena and Deirdre:

Rowena and Deirdre have been performing together for several years. They met originally while playing as members of the same symphony orchestra, and very soon started to enjoy exploring some of the extensive and varied flute and harp repertoire.

They are often joined in concerts by their friend, accomplished pianist and organist Fr Bruce Burbidge, and are a trio very much in support of live music in churches!

Rowena, originally a student at the Royal College of Music, is not only in demand as a harpist, she is also a parish priest in Leicester.

Deirdre studied at the Royal Northern College of Music with Trevor Wye and at Lancaster with Clare Southworth.
