Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Notable past venues of performance include Turner Sims, The Grove Hotel, Strawberry Hill House and Bletchley Park.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I always try my best to be flexible and am very happy to adapt to any changes of timings, as long as I'm given enough notice!
How much time do you need to set up?
I usually aim to arrive at the venue between 1 and 1.5 hours early, to leave plenty of time to set up and tune.
Is the transport of your harp included in your quote?
Yes, my quote includes all harp transportation and travel expenses.
Do you need any equipment provided to play outdoors?
None at all - my instrument is played acoustically so I don't need any equipment. However, if it is raining then I will need full cover or to perform indoors to protect my instrument from damage.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
My repertoire includes songs and pieces ideally suited to all kinds of different events, and I have learnt through experience to create specific set lists to suit different tastes and genre preferences. However I am always more than happy to discuss your event further and find what works best for you!
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
My set list includes only examples of my repertoire, and so if a song or piece of music isn't listed there, there's still a good chance I know it. If not, then I am happy to learn it for you. I will just need plenty of notice (at least 4 months).
