Helen Habershon


Part of Jim’s dream and Ice Warrior’s raison d'être is to convey the polar regions and their importance in every way, shape and form. Music evokes memories, emotions, feelings and conveys atmosphere and situation. Great music has the magical ability to paint pictures and tell stories.


As a composer and clarinettist with a highly distinguished performance history, Helen has this wonderful talent, in spades. She is deeply influenced by nature and describes her composing as receiving “downloads” from her inspirations. She has composed a piece called “Farewell Ice” specifically for the project which appears on her third album, “Found in Winter”.


“It is such a fabulously rich, moody, sad, haunting and poignant piece which, to me, epitomises the demise of the sea ice on the Arctic Ocean. I’m so chuffed she is part of Ice Warrior”. Jim


Her music is frequently broadcast around the world and can be purchased from her website HERE
