What if my timings change after I've booked you?
Please just let me know as soon as possible and it should not be a problem as I rarely do more than one event in one day.
How much time do you need to set up?
I usually arrive at least 20 minutes before I am booked to start playing which is generally plenty of time to set up as I only need a chair and possibly a power supply.
Is the transport of your harp included in your quote?
Yes the transportation of my harp is included in the travel expenses in my quote.
Do you need any equipment provided to play outdoors?
I have a portable amplifier which I bring with me which should not require additional power for at least two hours of music. For playing outside therefore I usually only need a chair, please.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Of course! I always tailor what I play to any requirements you might have as best as possible regarding specific pieces or musical styles.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Yes I am happy to learn up to a maximum of three new requests for an event depending on the lateness of the booking, and the suitability of the requests to be played on the Celtic Harp!
What do your clients love most about your performances?
Most people are quite blown away by the sound and the physicality of the harp being played when they encounter it! I am often bowled over with praise as the harp music inspires and touches deep emotions. I have a style which has developed very naturally as I am self-taught on the Celtic Harp.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
I recently performed at Tavistock Wharf with the band Mad Dog Mcrea supporting Seth Lakeman. I play every Friday night at Two Bridges Hotel, Dartmoor and every Sunday lunchtime at The White Thorn Inn, in Shaugh Prior, Devon. I have also performed twice in St. Eustacius’ Church in Tavistock in concerts by Vocal Harem and the Mount Kelly Choral Society.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Much of my harping inspiration comes from Maire Ni Chathasaigh, Savourna Stevenson and Deborah Henson-Conant, amongst many others.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
When I played at Tavistock Wharf in February 2019 with the band Mad Dog Mcrea. I also play regularly for formal Dinner events at the Britannia Royal Naval College, Dartmouth, and also for similar events for the Royal Navy at H.M.S. Drake in Devonport.
