Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The harp is a versatile instrument that brings a touch of magic t ay occasion. It's perfect for any atmosphere and can play a wide variety of genres, from peaceful classical to modern pop; from the best of jazz to film favourites.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have been lucky to perform in many venues in the past including: - Wells Cathedral - Canterbury Cathedral - Broome Park Hotel - The Secret Garden - Eastwell Manor - Finborough Theatre - Bartholomew Hurst - Howfield Manor - Hayne House And countless other beautiful reception and religious venues.

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

I always try my best 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?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. This ensures plenty of time for travel and to be ready to set the atmosphere as your guests arrive.

Is the transport of your harp included in your quote?

The prices here are a guideline and do not include travel, I will give. bespoke quote to suit any budget with travel included upon booking.

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?

My set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure a perfect day. I enjoy discussing with clients their perfect songs to make their event special and personal, so please let me know your song choice. Once I have an idea of your style I will play appropriate music to suit your taste.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I am more than happy to do this for you, and have done on many occasion. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account arrangement / rehearsal times etc.

Emma played at our wedding at The White Swan, Arundel on 06/05/2018. Emma’s amazing talent and varied repertoire brought something very special to our wedding ceremony and also our drinks reception. All of our guests commented on how wonderful the music was on the day, and Emma was friendly and professional throughout. Highly recommended!
