An 18 year-old Manx harpist says she never thought she would get into the finals of a UK-wide Folk music competition.

Mera Royle is one of just four nominees from across the Britain and Northern Ireland in the Young Folk Awards category of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

She's already performed live at a BBC Radio 2 Folk Show concert in Kendal.Mera says she started out just wanting to get more people to hear her music - and she's delighted to be able to perform Manx music to wider audiences.

The Ramsey Grammar School pupil will now attend the awards evening at the Waterfront Concert Hall in Belfast on Wednesday 4th April.
