About Glass Ceiling PR
GLASS CEILING PR is mostly based in London, but can sometimes be found by the seaside.
This highly effective and very independent Folk Music PR company run by Harriet Simms has been in operation for more than 15 years, helping to generate publicity for folk and acoustic musicians using excellent press, radio, online and TV contacts.
In addition, Glass Ceiling PR acts as specialist music consultant to TV, radio and promoters and from time to time, Harriet also produces special music related events.
Glass Ceiling PR is probably best known for its work helping to resurrect interest in British Folk and acoustic music over the past decade, but has also been proud to work with artists from around the globe and across a range of genres. Over the years, Glass Ceiling PR clients have included Dolly Parton, Ani DiFranco, Burning Spear, Joe Jackson, Alison Krauss. And Bagpuss. Harriet has four Mercury Prize nominees on her books and innumerable BBC Radio Folk Award winners too. Current clients include Topic Records, Bellowhead, Martin Carthy, his daughter Eliza Carthy and Linda Thompson.
Best of all, Glass Ceiling PR has had the chance to represent wonderful singers and musicians who have sung and made music for the love of it; whether they were fishermen from the 1940's or contemporary artists making world-class albums around their kitchen tables.
