Leah Stuttard comes from an industrial town in a particularly wet part of the North West of England. She has played the medieval harp for over 25 years and sung for a lot longer. After studies at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Switzerland, she has worked with many major names including Jordi Savall and Ensemble Unicorn. She is incredibly grateful that her career has taken her around the world, from Mexico to Russia. She first started working with the Italian ensemble Micrologus in 2002 and continues to add a certain Anglo-Saxon je-ne-sais-quoi to their performances. As a soloist, she performs English medieval music and has recorded two CDs; with Vivien Ellis (Sinfonye, Dufay Collective) she plays English ballads and sings Gregorian chant; with Danish/Swedish singer Agnethe Christensen (Sequentia) she explores more Northern repertoires like Scandinavian folk hymns; and she is about to embark on a duo project with the English singer John Potter, focused on sacred songs in the trouvère tradition.
