Trinity Buoy Wharf, The Electrician's Shop Gallery



Following the Government’s advice that all non-essential travel and socialising should stop to help contain the spread of the Coronavirus, we have made a decision to postpone "Trinity Buoy Wharf Live: Tara Minton" to Autumn this year, subject to artist's availability. Exact date will be announced in due course. 


"Trinity Buoy Wharf Live!" presents Jazz Wednesdays, featuring Tara Minton Ensemble – “Please do not ignore the mermaid”

Tara Minton - harp and vocals
Tommaso Starace - soprano saxophone
Phil Merriman – piano
Ed Babar - double bass
David Ingamells – drums
The Mermaid Greek Chorus

with special guest, Tom Nancollas

Tara’s latest project “Please Do Not Ignore The Mermaid” is an impressionistic dive into mermaid myth and legend that explores themes of identity, autonomy and responsibility toward the natural world and climate change. The harp is a captivating and powerful presence within the ensemble, sweeping the listener away into previously unexplored waters of sound.

Supported by a stellar array of musicians, Tara will give the first live performance of this new work ‘in concert’ and also to celebrate its launch as an album. The performance at Trinity Buoy Wharf will also feature four vocalists as the “Mermaid Greek Chorus” and very special guest Tom Nancollas, author of “Sea Shaken Houses – A Lighthouse History from Eddystone to Fastnet.”

Tara Minton is a harpist, vocalist and composer hailing from Melbourne, Australia. Since relocating to London in the Spring of 2011 she has built an international reputation as a gifted musician and educator.

Tara is proudly endorsed by Camac Harps and holds a master’s degree in jazz performance from The Guildhall School of Music and Drama. She was the recipient of both a Guildhall scholarship and The Andrew Lowenthal Award granted through The Tait Memorial Trust.

In 2018 Tara appeared with Björk on “Later… with Jools Holland” and had the privilege of touring with her to Barcelona to play Primavera Sound. She has played with Tom Walker, UK’s Eurovision starlet, SuRie and last Summer recorded a folk album with Canadian vocalist/violinist Miranda Mulholland. “By Appointment Or Chance” has since been nominated for a Juno Award – Canada’s national music awards.

Tara is renowned for her originality and versatility as a harpist - blending jazz, gypsy swing, folk and classical influences. Her unique style has lead her on adventures all over the UK and Europe, driving with her harp as far as southern Italy, France and Lithuania.
