“A virtuoso who can tickle and glide across the strings just as majestically as Harpo Marx once did, her enthralling and slightly unnerving music was enough to give even Mike Oldfield goosebumps.”
The Evening News – The Scotsman
“A brilliant young composer”
“Award-winning harpist Phamie Gow was astounding to listen to as she created sounds with the harp one would swear was three or four different instruments”
