    My harps are beautiful, cumbersome, expensive pieces of equipment - they require to be placed in the shade and protected from the elements. We also require parking close to the performance site - its hard to catch a bus with a concert harp!

      Karen, thank you so much for our attendance at our wedding. Your skills truly shined, and it was honestly such a beautiful and elegant moment. It is such a precious memory, walking down the aisle, with the lovely music to mark the moment. Thank you so much for the time and the effort you put in, having the face to face meeting, and for learning the pieces we requested. You were so so so helpful and lovely to work with during such a stressful time!
