Alice is a professional freelance harpist based in Manchester
Very professional, all our guests really enjoyed the music and Alice was able to play some which we'd requested which weren't on her published repertoire. Would definitely recommend!
An accomplished and professional musician, Alice arrived in good time and played a lovely set.
Excellent in all respects
Alice is an amazing harpist that is wonderfully professional, versatile, and easy to work with. Her musicianship is flawless and her timing and interpretation very strong. I'm hoping to work with her again soon and would strongly recommend her.
