Romy Wymer is a Glasgow-based harpist, originally from the Netherlands. She currently spends her time teaching, performing, and composing new music for the lever harp inspired by nature, art, stories and the mundane joys of life.
Romy studied traditional music with Heather Downie and Corrina Hewat at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, where she graduated with first class honours. Since then, she was a semifinalist in the BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year; and was awarded second place and the audience award in the World Harp Competition.
She plays with harp trio The Willow Trio, who are performing their multimedia folk ballet the Swan of Salen, and jazz collective Azamiah, who have recently released their debut album In Phases.
The highly adept composition stylings of Wymer display a close knowledge of the clarsach and an admirable musicality in her writing, which is both deftly paced and mindfully arranged ... It is a joyous capturing of sound which I cannot recommend highly enough.
