More questions?

Can you perform outside?  Yes!  If your dream is to have an outdoor event, ensure there is a flat, hard surface; moderate temperatures are required due to the delicate nature of the harp.  You'll need to make sure the harp is under cover & protected from the elements, including direct sunlight.

How far in advance should I book?  Plan 6-12 months in advance of your date.  Peak wedding season is May-September, start inquiring early to hire on a Saturday.

What equipment is required?  I am fully self-contained, with the exception of a tent or shelter from the elements. For large events, I have either a small cordless or a larger electric amplifier.

Can I request a song? Absolutely!  I'm happy to take requests if I can find sheet music online.  Not all music lends itself to the harp, I will give you an honest opinion if it will sound good on the harp.
