Leading UK harpist dies in road crash at 37

August 17, 2018 by norman lebrecht


Kate Molleson has written a fine obituary of Helen Macleod, ‘one of Scotland’s finest harp players’, who was killed on the roads at a terribly young age. Engaged in all styles of music, she was a regular with the Hebrides Ensemble and a teacher at St Mary’s.

‘She was energetic, creative, vibrant and inspiring. She was wickedly funny and full of spirit, a person who would light up any room.’
