Customer questions

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. If it it is raining then 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 do this for you. My fee includes the arrangement of three songs, and there is a fee of £25 for any additional songs.
