Customer questions

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

I am always happy to help accommodate your needs for the event! If you could let me know about timing changes as soon as possible, that would be extremely helpful, but I am generally quite flexible and will do whatever I can to ensure your event runs smoothly.

How much time do you need to set up?

Usually I only need about half an hour to set up before the performance time. This includes me tuning the harp and arranging my set-up.

Is the transport of your harp included in your quote?

Unless travel expenses are listed elsewhere, then yes, my transport is covered by the quote.

Do you need any equipment provided to play outdoors?

None at all - my instrument is played acoustically so I don't need any equipment. If 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 of course! I am happy to suggest what I think works best from previous experience, but if you have particular requests for songs or genres, then I would love to hear them.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

As long as the piece isn't too complex and it will work when played on the harp, then yes I am more than happy to take requests!

Rebecca really helped to make our office opening event special. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Rebecca as she was so accommodating, and a truly talented individual. We have had so much positive feedback regarding our event and I cannot thank Rebecca enough for making the event a memorable one.

Rebecca kindly played the harp at my sister’s wedding. She mesmerised our guests with her music and especially taking the time to learn some Indian pieces to play during the bridal entrance :-) After seeing the number of photos and videos circulating amongst our family of Rebecca’s performance, and this after the bride she may well have been the second most popular lady of the day! She has a real and profound connection with the Harp and it comes through in every piece of music she plays and seeing how much our 1000 or so guests enjoyed her repertoire we cannot wait to have Rebecca perform for us in many future events :-) From the moment I got in touch with Rebecca till the day of the wedding, the communication and service was truly above and beyond anything I could have expected. I already know many of our guests are looking to book Rebecca for their events and I hope many others out there get a chance to be wowed by her magical performances 😊 Thank you so much Rebecca!
