Laura Rose Gee was born in 1999 and started playing the harp at seven years old, after being transfixed when observing the Welsh performing at the International Eisteddfod.
After finding a local Tutor Helen Naylor, Laura soon became an award winning harpist performing herself at the Eisteddfod. At 9 years old she won 2nd place against the finalists of each of the 17 Welsh counties, when she performed her solo live for BBC Wales on the Cardiff Millennium Centre Stage. Following this performance she was invited to play live for BBC Television Children in Need at the Leicester Space Centre and subsequently invited to take part in BBC “Kids with Talent” hosted by Geeta Pendse.
For her achievements in music, Laura was awarded the Derbyshire Young Achievers Award from Derbyshire City Council in 2009 at the age of 10.
Laura performs with the Derbyshire Harp Ensemble “Derbyshire Harpz” in addition to her solo performances.
Laura’s harp playing has taken her up and down the country and several trips to Ireland with the Derbyshire Harp ensemble. Laura has also performed as a soloist in Spain and Lyon in France.
Laura performs at local weddings and functions in return for a donation towards her music fund to support her musical excursions. Laura also performs to raise money for charity functions. In the past she has supported local churches, the Lewis Mighty Fund and the “Littleover Kings Kids” Youth Club amongst others.
Laura has been supporting Derby coma victim Mathew Taylor by visiting him regularly in hospital and playing her harp by his hospital bed in addition to regularly playing to other hospital patients and visitors.
