Lucie Hendry is a Scottish lever harpist and composer, based in Denmark. Interested in exploring the possibilities of the lever harp, Lucie is currently going about intertwining her folk music roots with influences from the Nordic jazz and wider music scene. Lucie’s upcoming debut solo album aims to take her instrument in new directions, with the involvement of several jazz musicians, while still respecting the essence of the lever harp tradition. Often inspired by the natural world and motivated by environmental issues, she has toured throughout the UK and elsewhere in Europe, and was a finalist of BBC Radio Scotland's Young Traditional Musician of the Year in 2021.
I gained so much during Making Tracks in terms of experience, new ideas, musicianship development, ideas and tools, confidence and ultimately a lovely group of new musician friends who I really hope to collaborate with in the future. A thousand thanks (as they say in Denmark!) - it's really done me a world of good and I couldn't recommend the programme more to future applicants. (Lucie Hendry)
