Brigette was a pleasure to work with. She arrived early and was ready to go. Her music is absolutely beautiful. She played for my father's viewing and we couldn't have been happier. Her beautiful music added a peaceful and restful atmosphere on a very difficult day for our family. I would highly recommend her!
Bridget was a delight to work with.The party guests continually said that her music was beautiful to listen to.

What to Expect
I'm very flexible when it comes to events; I'll play at wedding ceremonies, receptions, funerals, dinners, cocktail parties, you name it. I always arrive in plenty of time to set up, so you don't have to worry about that with the other stresses of event planning! I usually like to take a break after an hour of playing (or after I finish my set), but other than that I can play for as long as you need. If your event has a certain theme and you'd like for me to dress, or embellish my instrument, to go along with that theme, I can do that as well. I take requests ahead of time as well, though there may be fees involved depending on if I don't already have the piece in my repertoire.

Additional Booking Notes
I can provide my own sound system if needed (it usually depends on the size of the space).
For staging, I would prefer to be placed somewhere that doesn't involve going up stairs, since the harp is heavy and hard to maneuver up stairs (elevators are great!) Also, inside venues are preferred, as the harp is sensitive to temperature and can be damaged by weather. Fees may apply for outdoor venues.
Lighting is flexible, I have a music stand light that I use to see my music at events with dimmer lights. Red or pink lighting is a little difficult since some of the strings on the harp are red and that will make them disappear.
