I love playing the harp and making beautiful music for special events like yours! I have been a freelancer for the past 5 years and my love for the art only grows. I feel fortunate enough to have performed with some of the best orchestras in the UK, including the London Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, at someone of the best venues in this country, including the Royal Opera House, Royal Albert Hall and Birmingham Symphony Hall I am very lucky to play on two concert harps, one blonde coloured, beautiful, with an air of simplicity, and one gold that will add wow factor to an event. I would be thrilled to add harp music to your event, and will always do everything I can to incorporate whatever you want for your event! Classical, pop, jazz, a mash up of everything!

Elin was amazing! We booked her for a Grand Launch of our newest building; she arrived on time, set-up promptly and played wonderfully. Everyone enjoyed the music and it set a really nice atmosphere for the event.

Customer questions

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

I always try and be as flexible as possible, and happy to talk through any changes of time.

How much time do you need to set up?

I always try and arrive anywhere an hour before I start playing, but if you are limited with set up time I will always do my best to fit in with what time there is.

Is the transport of your harp included in your quote?

Absolutely, transport is included!

Do you need any equipment provided to play outdoors?

The harp can easily be taken outside. There needs to be a flat surface for the harp to sit on, as well as some shelter! A gazebo or anything similar usually does the trick!

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

Of course! - and please feel free to make your own requests too!

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Absolutely, drop me a message with any requests you may have. If possible, give me as much notice as possible, but I’ll always do my best to incorporate your choices with whatever time I have.
