Helen O’Hara is a violinist, composer, musical director and arranger. She was a key member of Dexys Midnight Runners from 1982-1986 and was Tanita Tikaram’s violinist from 1988-1990. She has recorded two solo instrumental albums, Southern Hearts and A Night In Ireland.
In 1991, Helen took a break from music to raise her two sons. The break extended for over two decades until 2014, when she picked up her violin again. She has since reconnected with both Dexys and Tanita, and plays violin in Tim Burgess’s band. She lives in London.
