About Caroline Stapleton

Professional Irish Harpist available for all occasions.
Harpist
Glasgow

I provides beautiful and elegant harp music for wedding ceremonies, wedding pre-dinner drinks, wedding receptions, funerals, corporate events, private functions, anniversary celebrations, birthday parties, charitable fundraisers, Christmas parties, cocktail parties and more! I am a professional Irish Harpist, who studied at University College Dublin and received an Honours Bachelor Degree in Music. I have performed in many countries including Ireland, America, Spain, New Zealand and the UK, playing for concerts, weddings, ceremonies, functions, St. Patrick's Day Parades and charity events. I have been a member of an Orchestra, a Marching Band and a Céilí group all of my life and now spend my time performing professionally and teaching music to individuals and groups. I have a large repertoire that includes the most popular wedding music, modern chart songs, Irish and Celtic music, classic hits, orchestral masterpieces and everything in between. Any song can be performed upon request to make your occasion as perfect and as personal as it should be.

Customer questions

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

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

How much time do you need to set up?

I will always arrive in plenty of time before the event, and take 30 minutes to set up.

Is the transport of your harp included in your quote?

Yes absolutely, everything is included in the travel cost.

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, no problem. We will discuss the set list before the event to ensure you are happy with what I will be playing.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes that’s no problem. We can discuss any special pieces that you would like performed. As long as I have one weeks notice to allow for rehearsal time, there is a small fee for this.

Katy B, 4 years ago

A special and exceptional musician! Caroline is a true professional and she really added a special touch to our wedding day. She worked with us to choose personal and meaningful songs for our ceremony and reception. As well as being a total sweetheart she is very talented on the harp and we couldn’t have chosen a better musician.

Bernadette B, 2 years ago

Caroline was very professional and played everything we asked for I would definitely recommend her.
