Helen joined the line-up early in 2013. A “Geordie” from north-east England’s historic Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Helen has a background in music teaching, choral singing and classical music. However since meeting Steve nearly 30 years ago she had played with him in several folk bands, performing from as far afield as Mombasa, Kenya, to Leiden in The Netherlands. She can claim to be the only band member (so far) to have performed at New York’s Carnegie Hall! She adds fiddle, keyboards, bass and her rich voice to the Horizon Ridge sound.
