About Hero Douglas

Hello, I'm Hero Douglas a harpist, singer and composer, I am available for all concerts and have a lot of performance experience!
Public liability insurance of £1 million

I just finished a music degree at Oxford University and before that I studied harp, composition, piano and singing at Chetham’s School of Music between the ages of 11 and 16. As a harpist and singer I have performed at the Royal Festival Hall, Bridgewater Hall and Wembley Arena. I was the principal harpist for the Liverpool Philharmonic Youth Orchestra and have performed on S4C, BBC, Sky and Channel 4. A song that I composed got to number 5 in the iTunes charts. I was one of three Welsh children to sing at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and I have recorded an album of Sunday school songs.
