Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I always go the extra mile to tailor every performance to each individual client.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

The Barbican, Birmingham Symphony Hall, De Montfort Hall, Konzerthaus Berlin, Leeds Town Hall, Nottingham Royal Concert Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Sage Gateshead, Sheldonian Theatre, Snape Maltings Concert Hall, Westminster Hall, BBC Radio.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I love to listen to all types of music - as you can see from the broad range of genres I offer!

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

This is a tricky one! I'd have to go for either playing at the Royal Albert Hall in the BBC Proms, or performing in Westminster Hall for a Royal Jubilee Celebration.

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

I always try my best to be flexible to help ensure that your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change in the run up to the event just let me know as soon as possible.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually arrive at the venue to set up 1 hour before the performance time.

Is the transport of your harp included in your quote?

Yes - all travel costs are included in my quotes.

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?

Yes, absolutely. You are very welcome to let me know your preferences from my repertoire list.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes, of course. This is something I’m very happy to discuss prior to making the booking.

I am so pleased we chose Aoife for our event. With a couple of exceptions we left the choice of music up to her, and she did not dissapoint.

Aoife was incredible!!!!! She was very patient, we ran late, she waited, she played the songs we requested beautifully. It added another level to our wedding and the mood wouldn't have been the same without her. She was truly amazing and I would 1000000% book her again.
