Identity

Tara Minton is an Australian born harpist, vocalist and composer. She is proudly endorsed by Camac Harps and holds a masters degree in jazz performance from The Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Tara is well established as both an improvising harpist and vocalist and has worked with Björk, Tom Walker, Miranda Mulholland, “Kitty, Daisy and Lewis”, SuRie, Stan Sulzman, Tommaso Starace, Tony Kofi and Geoff Gascoyne. She leads her own original project as a harpist/vocalist – her latest release “Please Do Not Ignore The Mermaid”  received widespread critical acclaim. When not sitting behind her harp, Tara sings with “The Blues and Roots Ensemble”, a London based nine-piece band celebrating the music of Charles Mingus. Tara is a passionate music educator and advocate for the harp in jazz and improvised music and teaches as Professor of Jazz Harp at the London Performing Academy of Music

“An otherworldly collection that brings the harp centre stage” – The Sunday Times  “The unlikely but magical missing link between Barbra Streisand and Dorothy Ashby” – Jazzwise  “Swinging, brave and sexy” – London Jazz News  “Tara Minton’s creative route teems and glistens with individuality, while that ‘prog’ side of her personality will be watched and encouraged!” – AP reviews  “Mesmerising” – Moths and Giraffes  “As well as playing a mean harp, Minton also provides ethereal vocals on what is an accomplished collection of performances.” – Charles Waring, Jazz Collector
