About

Harpist
Glasgow
Professional pedal and lever harpist educated in both classical and Scottish traditional music. Interested and happy to play any genre!

Justyna is a harpist from Stockholm, Sweden working on freelance basis in Glasgow, Scotland as well as Sweden. Having been educated in both classical (Royal College of Music in Stockholm) and traditional celtic music (Royal Conservatoire of Scotland), she has a huge variety of interests and curiosity to discover new fields, and is one of few harpists with degrees in two genres. Creativity and dedication are her mottos in any project that she's involved in and she always strives to, in all her collaborations, to bring fresh ideas and positive thinking. Her most recent performances include Urkult, one of Sweden's biggest world music festivals, Pustervik, renowned jazz club in Gothenburg, and as part of the chamber orchestra Västerås Sinfonietta.
