Bridget Kibbey


Extraordinary harpist Bridget Kibbey, called “the Yo-Yo Ma of the harp (Vogue Magazine),” is in demand for her virtuosic and soulful performances that transcend her instrument. At ease crossing classical, global, and jazz genres, Kibbey dives deep into historic narratives —from the Baroque, to the French Belle Époque to Persian Modes, to Nuevo Latino traditions – while resonating within the vanguard of the new. According to the New York Times“…she made it seem as though her instrument had been waiting all its life to explode with the energetic figures and colors she was getting from it.”

Kibbey is a winner of a prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant, Premiere Prix at the Journées de les Harpes Competition, made her NPR Tiny Desk Solo Debut, and is the only harpist to win a place in the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s Bowers Program. In 2023/24, Kibbey makes solo debuts at Dumbarton Oaks, Caramoor, Music@Menlo, Rockport Music, Festival Napa Valley, the VIVO Festival, Saratoga PAC, and in Alice Tully Hall with Artists of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.

Alongside solo recitals and concerti, Kibbey tours programming of her own creation–with mandolinist Avi Avital, The Dover Quartet, celebrated Persian singer Mahsa Vahdat, Latin-Grammy winning percussionist Samuel Torres, among others.
