What if my timings change after I've booked you?
Any time changes can be accounted for as long as enough notice is given beforehand.
How much time do you need to set up?
Is the transport of your harp included in your quote?
Do you need any equipment provided to play outdoors?
None at all - my instrument is played acoustically so I don't need any equipment. If it is raining then I will need full cover or to perform indoors as my instrument is valuable and could be damaged.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
I am more than happy to discuss set lists and if there are any specific requests these can nearly always be completed as long as enough time is given to learn the piece!
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Yes absolutely - as long as enough time is given to prepare the piece. If more than 3 new pieces are wanted then a fee for £30 is added to the price.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
The ambience that the harp creates at weddings and functions is unparalleled. It creates atmosphere and the perfect setting for your special day.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
