Aeden did a fabulous job of playing incidental music for my father’s reception. This is the second time we were able to have her play and we feel fortunate to have had her both times!
Music was beautiful and it made the ceremony really memorable. Thank you!
Harp muse is an appropriate name for Aedan. She magically transformed our Burns Dinner from a party to an event that our friends and family will remember forever! She could not have been more helpful and gung-ho for whatever was thrown her way. She played musical accompaniment for 2 singers she had never met learned a new song and gave a fabulous and fun performance - even singing herself! Aedan joined our Ferguson Clan and friends and made the Bard proud.
Music was beautiful, calming and relaxing.
The music performed by Aeden was beautiful. We
are happy that we were able to hire her! Very professional!
Response from HarpMuse Inspirations:
