Which venues have you performed at in the past?
I have played weddings at venues across the North East Midlands, including Lincolnshire's Doddington Hall and Elsham Hall, as well as various churches in Yorkshire. I've also played further afield across the UK, including Oxford. Churches, estates, historic sites or village halls - indoor or outdoor - the harp is a wonderful addition to an event.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I will always try my best to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. Please let me know as soon as possible if there is a slight change to your predicted timings.
How much time do you need to set up?
Ideally, I need 30 minutes before the performance in order to set up and tune. For most settings, playing acoustically will be very effective but in some cases, amplification may be needed. If amplification is needed for your event, I can liaise with you and the venue and provide the equipment needed. This will take slightly longer than the standard time.
Is the transport of your harp included in your quote?
Absolutely - The transport of my harp is included in my quoted travel expenses.
Do you need any equipment provided to play outdoors?
I am happy to play outside but the harp needs to be stood on hard ground, or a flat, firm surface. I will need shelter to perform if it is raining or in direct sunlight as my instrument is valuable and could be damaged. For most settings, playing acoustically will be very effective. In some cases, amplification may be needed - I can provide the equipment.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
I'm happy to discuss the music choices which will best suit the style and tone of your event - my repertoire includes a mixture of classical and contemporary pop and jazz styles.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
If a piece isn't included in my example list there may still be a chance that I already know it. If it's not in my existing repertoire, I can learn up to two requests for your event. If you have further additional requests, then we can discuss an extra fee in order to accommodate for sheet music fees and extra rehearsal time.
