Nancy played for our wedding in this elegant, restored barn in Hudson. From the minute she began playing,
it was truly magical. From classical to contemporary to the actual wedding music, Nancy could do anything.
We also added a duet and they all took off with it. I could not have been more happy. What an accomplished
musician Nancy is and hearing her play will make anyone's day. I would highly recommend her for any event and hope I can hear her play professionally soon!
Nancy was wonderful to work with! She is so talented, and the music just "made" the reception! Many of our guests complimented her and sang her praises as well! I love the variety of her selections! I would recommend her to anyone!
Nancy Paterson was professional, timely in responses, and played beautifully for our event. She tailored her music to our program (An Adult Bible Study on Caravaggio: Exploring the Bible Through the Brush of a Saint and Sinner) and accommodated a last minute request to share a little about herself and harp because our participants were so fascinated by her music. Thank you, Nancy!
She was unbelievably stupendous
Nancy Paterson was delightful ! She was so accommodating, even though she played outside! Everyone was so impressed and loved her playing. The Groom and his father were moved that she played the Jurassic Park Theme as the bride walked down the aisle. She made the wedding absolutely Epic Event.
Response from Nancy Paterson:
Thank you for the review, and for inviting me to play at the wedding. Theme from Jurassic Park for a wedding march?.....Yes! I loved it!!
Nancy Paterson’s skill and sensitivity adds an amazing dimension to worship. We will absolutely invite her back again!
Nancy was easy to get a hold of and very kind. The Residents, staff and family members really enjoyed listening to her play the harp! It was the perfect touch for our Holiday Glow party. I would highly recommend Nancy!

Nancy played beautifully. So glad we hired her for our son’s wedding.
Nancy arrived with plenty of time to do a sound test and got herself set up. She played before, during and after the wedding ceremony, performing all the requested songs with delightful ease. She even learned a new song specially for the bride & groom. Listening to and working with Nancy is a pleasure. I highly recommend you book her for your event!
Nancy is a true professional. She was easy to work with and helped us from the planning stages through the event. She made my daughter’s wedding day come to life with her beautiful music. She truly made the event special!!
I wish I had more time to talk to Nancy. Her work was a beautiful accompaniment to our cocktail hour at my daughter's wedding. Bravo, Nancy!
Nancy’s music was just beautiful and she was amazingly accommodating, even with the rain. Thank you so much Nancy!
Nancy was very professional and on time! Her music was absolutely beautiful and would hire her again!
Nancy was excellent! She is so talented and extremely professional. She was prompt for the event and chose the perfect mix of music for my event. Everyone at the party raved about her. I would highly recommend her for your event!!
We are a public library, who held our very first "Sounds of the Season" event. Nancy played for an hour and a half, answered all kinds of questions from many, many patrons, and made our event perfect. Her playing was excellent, and there's nothing better to put you in the Holiday spirit than holiday music on a harp. I must add that Nancy was very flexible, as she answered many more questions than even I expected from people who sat and enjoyed the entire event. Professional, flexible, easy-going, and very easy to work with.
Nancy was an excellent harpist and a wonderful person. She arrived with plenty of time to set up and had everything she needed. She performed exactly as we requested and was quite accommodating even though we had booked with only two days notice. I would highly recommend her!
Would hire again and again❣️
Nancy did a beautiful job for my mother's birthday party, I would highly recommend her.
Nancy played for my daughters wedding! Her performance made the day even more special than it already was. I would recommend her for any event, and will gladly call on her service again when needed! Thanks to Nancy, my daughters wedding music was beautiful... Thank you Nancy!
Nancy was professional and proved to be an excellent choice. She played before, during and after my daughter's wedding. We got started late but she took in stride. I asked nancy to pick the music, which saved me much time and her choices were wonderful. I would highly recommend her for any occasion. I must also add that her rates are incredibly reasonable.
Nancy provided exactly the elegant musical backdrop we wanted for the wedding. She played every song requested and was prompt on arrival and responding to several emails. I highly recommend her for any event!
