Lucy Carolan

Born and brought up in Edinburgh, Lucy Carolan was fortunate enough to encounter the world-famous Russell Collection of Early Keyboard Instruments while studying music at Edinburgh University, and was subsequently awarded a scholarship to study harpsichord with Gustav Leonhardt in Amsterdam. Since then she has performed throughout Britain and Europe as both soloist and continuo player on virginals, harpsichord, clavichord and fortepiano, in music ranging from the Dublin Virginal Manuscript to Michael Tippett. A frequent solo recitalist, she has been particularly acclaimed for her interpretations of J.S.Bach, and her repertoire includes all the major Bach harpsichord works. Since 1991 she has taught harpsichord at Birmingham Conservatoire.
