What if my timings change after I've booked you?
Just let me know as soon as you do. I’ll make sure that I allow plenty of time between any other bookings, so there shouldn’t usually be a problem. If anything dramatically changes with the date etc and I can no longer do the gig, I’ll recommend others!
How much time do you need to set up?
I can set up within 15 minutes but allow myself 30 mins prior to starting playing, and just to make sure I can suss out the venue, firm up cues etc
Is the transport of your harp included in your quote?
Do you need any equipment provided to play outdoors?
I’m very happy to play outdoors as long as it is not raining as this can damage my (precious!) instrument. I also require notice about playing outdoors, as I’ll need to bring pegs etc to stop any sheet music blowing about whilst playing favourite requests! Please also bear in mind that the instrument will also be quieter outside.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Yes, the set list is just a small example of music I have recently played at weddings/ events. If you don’t see anything you’d like there then I’d be happy to learn requests.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Yes, wherever possible, I am very happy to learn requests and have played everything from Metallica to Disney at wedding ceremonies. As soon as you know which pieces you would like, I will arrange my own harp version for you. Occasionally, some pieces don’t transfer well to the lever harp. If this is the case, I’ll happily advise other options.
