Catrin is a phenomenal musician who has done more than anyone else so far this century to put the harp on the musical map. Catrin was the first Royal Harpist to HRH the Prince of Wales, a post that was revived by the Prince on hearing Catrin at his 50th Birthday celebrations in Buckingham Palace. A prizewinner of many competitions, she has appeared internationally in recitals as well as concerto performances. Her recital as the finale of the Linton Music Society's season will contain J.S. Bach's famous Toccata and Fugue in D minor, Paul Patterson's Bugs!! and 19th and 20th century Spanish music.

A genuinely uninhibited, adventurous player, her work being full of character and no little grace.
