Ellen was great at staying in touch and being open to our song requests. Her and her keyboard player created a lovely ambience at our wedding and her voice was beautiful. Thanks so much Ellen.

Ellen & Cam performed at my 50th birthday afternoon tea party and they were fantastic. Their beautiful music set a wonderful ambiance for the party, their repertoire was spot on and their understated manner charming. Such a pleasure to have you both at our home. Alison

We got Harmony Row to perform at our office Christmas Party on 22nd November 2019. We loved their vintage take on classic Christmas songs - they created the perfect atmosphere!
