About Harry

Harry Phillips's profile picture
Flautist
Larne
Harry is a fantastic musician that can add something very special to any event.

Flautist Harry Phillips has created a diverse and successful career in music since he first lifted a flute at the age of 11. At the age of 15 Harry, already an accomplished flautist, was chosen by Sir James Galway OBE to play in concert with him in the American Embassy, Dublin, following a week long master class he had hosted. Harry has performed and played professionally for over 30 years both as a soloist and as part of larger ensembles. He has a wealth of experience having performed at a  wide variety of  events including; playing for Royalty at Hillsborough Castle, various performances in the Ulster Hall, Bunratty Castle Limerick, and other impressive venues throughout the country. When you are looking for something extra special for your wedding function, Harry can create the perfect atmosphere for your guests at the ceremony, the wedding reception and even during meal. Replaying the day once it has been captured through multimedia and hearing those melodies, at those all important parts of the day, really is something not to be missed especially upon home viewing by family, friends and loved ones. For something different and individual Harry’s style and flexibility means his music can also become the diamond sparkle that makes your corporate event the one that stands out. Make your event the one that will see your company name talked about once the guests have left and are discussing the wonderful evening with colleagues the following morning. Harry’s ability to capture that quintessential mood will not disappoint.  He will provide that perfect backdrop for your event whether it is organised through the day time or in the evening. Your guests will feel relaxed and comfortable as you mingle and network to the backdrop of “Fly me to the moon” or James Bond’s “Skyfall”.

Adds a touch of class to any corporate event or special occasion, ability to flex to every occasion in terms of style and music choice is fantastic. Someone who really takes pride in the quality and sound of the music he creates which is ever so hard to find these days. Highly recommend, just listen to the music samples on website to hear for yourself.
