Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

This isn't a problem

How much time do you need to set up?

I like to be there an hour before

Is the transport of your harp included in your quote?

I include travel/petrol to travel to the venue but that's it unless its a foreign performance, in which case there is a fee to fly the harp

Do you need any equipment provided to play outdoors?

Nope, but if its raining this would damage the harp and if its windy the wind interferes with the PA so I have to stay inside in either of these scenarios

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Yes and you can request pieces too

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

yes

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The sound!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I've performed all over the world.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Mary Dillon, Catriona McKai, Michael Rooney, Hozier.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I'm not really that sort of artist so nothing has sprung to mind. I played on Blue Peter when I was young

We booked Amy to play at our wedding ceremony in Kilcoo in December 2018 and we could not have been happier with this decision. Really easy to communicate with, extremely accommodating of all our requests and an absolutely stunning performance on the day. We requested a couple of songs that Amy diligently learnt, making our ceremony more personal than we could ever have imagined and we could not be more grateful. Our guests were truly blown away with Amy’s talent and everyone loved hearing her play. Thank you for making our day so special Amy! Ami & Peter McClean
