Customer questions

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

My favourite wedding venues that come to mind are Edinburgh Castle, Gleneagles Hotel, Eriska Hotel, Lunga House, Balbirnie House, Knockraich Farm and Drimnim Chapel. However they are all always beautiful, from hotels to castles to beaches! I have a harp stand therefore I can usually play both in and outdoors as long as it's not raining.

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

I have performed for the First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon, on several occasions at Edinburgh Castle. I have been lucky enough to play for HRH Prince of Wales in St Giles Cathedral, and regularly provide music at Gleneagles Hotel and Hopetoun House. My debut EP was launched at the prestigious Celtic Connections Festival 2020.

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

I always try my best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let me know.

How much time do you need to set up?

If not specified then I will always be there at least 30 minutes before to assure I am set up and warmed up for the event. Since I have a car and not restricted to public transport times I can arrive at whatever time suits!

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

Yes of course! I have a range of styles and songs that you can choose from, or I am more than happy to arrange a specific song that is special and unique to your day! I am also a keen composer and offer writing a composition to add a personal touch which can be performed and also printed as a gift. For this service there is an additional fee of £80.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! The only thing I ask is if an armless chair can be available, however if that is not possible I can supply my own, and can also play standing. If amplification is required please supply a 240V power supply.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song is not on my set list, I am more than happy to arrange music of any genre for the day! All I ask is for the request to be at least two weeks before the event. If there is more than two songs to arrange, there is a fee of £30 added to take into account the arranging and rehearsal time.
