Fiona Hosford

Meet the Host, Fiona

Gaining extensive experience performing throughout the UK and abroad for over 20 years, Fiona Hosford LSRM BA (Hons) is a gifted and experienced harpist based in the South East of England. Fiona also studied the piano, violin, and singing but when she began the Harp at age 6 it soon became apparent that the other instruments were secondary to the Harp.

Fiona enjoys putting the aspects of her well-traveled experiences into her vast repertoire, which ranges from Classical through to her love of Jazz. With her varied repertoire, she has delighted a wide range of clients with her soothing and uplifting music and her statuesque gold harp has added an air of refinement and relaxation.

Often described as the most friendly, ‘normal’ Harpist about, with a strong sense of humour and a sympathetic musical ear, Fiona ensures that your musical tastes are adhered to and is flexible and thoughtful in her approach.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!

More Information

What if I can’t make the event?

If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.

Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?

Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.

How do I watch the live event?

Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.

How do I sign-up for and access the recording? (Recorded events only)

Book the event as normal (as if you are attending live). After the event ends you will automatically receive a post-event email with a link to the recording, as long as the event was recorded. You do not need to do anything else and there is no separate booking process for recordings only. Please note it can take up to 24 hours for Zoom to process recordings.
