Harriet played the violin at my husband's funeral. After discussing the song choice, I left the choice to her, she was very lovely about it. She chose Londonderry Air (Danny Boy) as my husband had Irish connections and he loved that song. On the day of the funeral, Harriet arrived promptly and was smartly dressed. She played beautifully to the packed church and many people said how poignant the moment was. I want to hire her again for my nephew's wedding.
