I really enjoy playing at weddings, I feel that good music really makes the ceremony special and memorable. I’m obviously biased, but I genuinely feel that a harp (being somewhat angelic!) creates a beautiful ambience which is perfect for a wedding ceremony.
I’ve played at many weddings, church weddings, civil ceremonies, humanist ceremonies, druid ceremonies and renewal of vows and for every wedding I work with the Bride and Groom to get the music that is perfect for them. I have a few samples of wedding music from my extensive repertoire below and other music samples on the audio samples page.
I also play during drinks receptions, dinners and corporate events.
I regularly play in Slane Castle, Darver Castle and Glenloe Abbey and my recent live work includes the Boyle Arts Festival, Feile Belfast, Flatlake Arts and Literary Festival, CQAF Belfast, The Harp Festival Termonfeckin and the Amnesty International Concert in Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any enquiries you may have.
I look forward to meeting you.
