Celtic Harp

Haley Hewitt - celtic harp, vocals

Haley Hewitt is a Boston-based performer, composer, arranger, educator, and harpist. Steeped in music from North America, Scotland and Ireland, her music has a distinctly traditional flavor. With a Bachelor's Degree from the Hartt School of Music in pedal harp performance and a Masters Degree from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Scottish Traditional Music, she has founded Celtic Harp departments at Quinnipiac University and the Neighborhood Music School. Passionate about new music, she has also worked closely with composers including Michael OSullivan, Ken Steen, Robert Carl and Dan Lis, to produce new literature for the harp. Her harp playing has taken her to Carnegie Hall, Benaroya Hall, Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, and won her the New England Open Scottish Harp Competition in 2006 and the US National Scottish Harp Championship in 2013.

Haley Hewitt is one of the most exciting, innovative, and gifted harp players of the up-and-coming generation. Playing Scottish music, but also interested in traditional music from around the world, Haley has been breaking boundaries and pushing the limits of what is possible for the instrument.

Haley Hewitt came to the lever harp at the age of 9, after studying piano for a few years. She took to the instrument and its music immediately. Throughout her early years, she competed extensively in the United States. At the age of 12, she began studying pedal harp. After years of performing with professional, community, school orchestras and smaller ensembles, working with composers to perform new work, she obtained a Bachelor in Music Degree in Harp Performance from the Hartt School of Music in Hartford. Haley moved to Scotland in September 2011 to study lever harp as a Masters Degree student in the Scottish Music Department at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. In addition to her study of the Scottish harp, she conducted research on murder ballads.

Haley has written for film, small ensembles, and solo harp, and has worked with several composers to create new works for the instrument. She loves to teach, and offers private lessons. It is her dream to help develop a program for the advanced study of the lever harp in the United States.
