…grew up in Hexhamshire and emigrated to New Zealand 20 years ago. She took her musical heritage with her and has been enthusiastically sharing it ever since. She performs in both New Zealand and Australia as The Hexahmshire Lass and has featured in many festivals in both countries, including The Australian National Folk Festival in 2015. Helen sings, recites, and plays the Northumbrian Smallpipes with an infectious humour. Her songs range from very ancient to almost new and touch on all the human emotions: cry about loss, laugh about love, suffer with those who struggle, celebrate with those who triumph. The tunes will make you want to dance, tap your feet, smile or remember special moments.
