What to Expect
My music is tailored to your program, theme, and event! I'm open to any special requests and range from oldies and standards to classical and pop. I do play for outdoor events at an additional fee and arrive 20 minutes early for setup. I also offer a harp pickup for amplification at no additional cost (amp not included).
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!

Additional Booking Notes
Do you play for outdoor events?
Yes I do! (at an additional fee) I request a large umbrella, tent or similar, to cover the harp. Because of its sensitivity, it must remain out of direct sunlight and rain. Think of it like me - when I'm cold, it's cold and when I'm hot, it's hot!
I accept special requests! I'm open to arranging a piece for the harp per your request if there is no harp version available. I'm always to-date on newly released pop songs but am familiar with music starting from the 60's!
