From customers:

“Isbel’s harp playing was one of the most beautiful parts of our wedding day. In the midst of all the riotous fun there was a period of such peace, people were bewitched”

Ben G, 3 years ago

'Isbel kindly played for us during our wedding ceremony & we couldn't have been happier. Not only was her music amazing but she even took the time to learn two songs just for us (S Club's reach sounded beautiful on the clarsach!)'
