Margaret Knight

Margaret Knight began her career presenting voice and harp recitals as a young artist with Lord Yehudi Menuhin’s Live Music Now! concert scheme. Winner of an Anglo-Norse society scholarship, Margaret has performed worldwide, notably in the famous Winter Palace in St Petersburg, and on Russian television. Margaret has also composed and recorded voice and harp music for broadcast dramas on BBC Radio Three and made arrangements of many classical and folk songs.

Besides Silent Noon, Margaret can be heard on several other Beautiful Jo recordings, notably Folk Melodies of the British Isles and The Music of Dickens and his Time. As a member of The Seven Dials Band she appeared onstage with Freddie Jones at The Oxford Playhouse in our theatrical presentation of Dickens and Music.

Recently, Margaret’s love of classical song has prompted her to develop as a singer in oratorio, recital and orchestral repertoire.
