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.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My range of repertoire and ability to provide a bespoke musical experience for each of my clients.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have performed in many prestigious venues across the UK and further afield. Examples include the Royal Albert Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall, the Royal Festival Hall, Sage Gateshead, Westminster Hall, and the Konzerthaus Berlin.

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 on my repertoire list!

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

I'd probably 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 at least forty minutes before the performance time.

Is the transport of your harp included in your quote?

Yes, the transport of my harp is included in my quotes.

Do you need any equipment provided to play outdoors?

No - 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 on Encore.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes, of course. I am always happy to discuss any musical requests you may have! N.B. My repertoire list on Encore isn't exhaustive, so please do feel free to ask about any music you have in mind.
