Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Royal Festival Hall, Ronnie Scott’s, The Shard, Old Marylebone Town Hall, The Foundling Museum, Soho Farmhouse

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I recorded at FAME studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama where Aretha Franklin recorded her first record.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I will try my best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually need about 30-45 minutes to set up.

Is the transport of your harp included in your quote?

Transport up to 10 miles is included in my quote. There is a small additional cost for travel of distances greater than 10 miles.

Do you need any equipment provided to play outdoors?

None at all - my instrument can be played both acoustically or amplified. In the case of rain, I will need full cover or to perform indoors as my instrument is valuable and could be damaged.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Yes!

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes! If a song isn't included in my song list, there is a chance I may know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn, I'm happy to arrange this for a small additional additional fee.

Wonderful. Natalie's music brought such peace and happiness to the garden party to celebrate my husband's life. She was completely lovely and unassuming while being the consummate musician. Many guests were surprised and delighted that a harpist and a golden harp were with us. They told me how much they enjoyed Natalie's playing and the music she performed. (She has a wide repertoire.) Her beautiful harp invited us to share in a lovely thanksgiving. Natalie is a star, but her playing is never about her. It's a gift to you.

We booked Natalie for our wedding ceremony - she was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. Before the event, she helped us develop a detailed music playlist and also made her own arrangements of two special song requests - one of them was for the bridal processional and was honestly the best version of the song we have ever heard. We would highly recommend her for any special event!
