Claire played at our wedding ceremony and was great! She was able to play the songs we wanted and many of our guests commented on how nice the harp sounded. She was also helpful with increasing her insurance to meet the venues requirements. Thanks! - Aaron and Maiya

Claire added wonderful class to our Afternoon Tea event. Everyone was hugely complimentary of her talents and she was a truly lovely and professional person too. Would highly recommend her.
