FAQs about hiring Harpists in Islington

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

How long do harpists play for?

Harpists play for about 45-50 minutes, then take a 15-minute break to rest, drink water, and play beautiful music again. A harp performance often lasts two sets, or around two hours in total.

Would a harp suit my event?

Harpists are perfect for occasions (or portions of occasions) where you want live music but don't want it to be the main attraction. Wedding harpists are particularly common but the harp is also suited for corporate events and funerals/memorial ceremonies, typically as background music during the sections where visitors are chatting, such as drinks receptions.

Do harpists take requests?

Yes! Harpists enjoy adding new compositions to their repertoire, and if they can't find an arrangement, they will often compose one for your event. This may result in an additional fee for your booking, but it is definitely worth the extra cost to have such a unique form of party entertainment.

What types of music can harpists play?

Professional harpists are versatile musicians capable of playing a wide variety of music genres. While classical music is their forte, they can also perform contemporary, popular, and even experimental music. Classical harpists excel in Baroque, Romantic, and modern compositions, including works by renowned composers like Bach, Mozart, and Debussy. Additionally, harpists can arrange and perform traditional folk music from various cultures, showcasing the harp's adaptability to diverse musical traditions. They can enchant listeners with Celtic tunes, Middle Eastern melodies, and Latin American folk songs. Harp players can also play modern hits, film scores, jazz classics, and even well-liked rock or pop tunes, providing a distinctive and refined rendition of these genres. You can browse and filter through our varied collection of 145 harpists for hire to find one that will play the genres you're looking for. You can also speak to one of our experts to get tailored advice on booking a harpist for your event.

How long will the harpist play for?

Yes, harpists will bring their own harp and the majority of harpists will have a music stand and a stool. However, they may occasionally need you to provide a chair. There should also be sufficient lighting in the area where they will be playing.
