Elinor (19), who now studies at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, bagged the award at the Edinburgh Competition Festival where she claimed the Traves Trophy and a gold medal for a 30-minute recital on concert harp and clarsach.

The competition is open to amateur musicians of all ages and was held over two days.
