The Peacock's Feathers
Meet the Band
Katherine Highet plays the Celtic Harp for the Peacock's Feathers. Katherine has placed first in the Harp at the Mid-Atlantic Fleadh Cheoil numerous times. In addition to Celtic Harp, Katherine is an accomplished classical harpist and pianist. Katherine was diagnosed with autism at an early age and music has played a large part in enabling her to become the wonderful young women she is today. We invite you to visit Kat's Cafe to learn more about Katherine and her life with autism.
The Peacock's Feathers Band Started in Spring 2012 and had to separate due to Katherine's relocation to Princeton area. Today Peacock's Feathers consists of Katherine Highet and guest artists. We hope to see our original members soon. We miss them both!
