About


Amanda is a harpist with style and experience resulting in her being in great demand for functions and events across the country. Her music ranges from classical to contemporary, specialising in modern and jazz. Her attention to detail and capability result in her impressive client history, with performances for many high profile events.

With a BMus Degree, LRSM and Masters in Jazz (the first known harpist in the UK) Amanda is a pioneer in Jazz harp in the UK. She currently teaches at The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Cardiff and The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and has recently tutored at RNCM and Junior RNCM. With an impressive clientele she is often found playing at weddings, corporate events and festivals and is able to tailor the music to your event. With many years of experience, Amanda is able to perform the right music to enhance the atmosphere at any wedding and may perform music for the guests as they arrive at the church, during the signing of the register, for optional marches as an alternative to the organ, and for the bride, groom and guests to leave the room. She is also able to perform at the drinks reception until the wedding party moves into the wedding breakfast, and also for the wedding breakfast itself. 

Furthermore, if you are looking to give your corporate event or function something a little different, maybe a harp on a raised platform in the middle of a room whilst the guests mingle around for their drinks reception whilst listening to some light jazz. Or perharps with her harp trio, creating a chill out jazz vibe, changing the repertoire to suit the mood and type of client- from large corporate dinners to intimate parties...

Also, if your event has a theme, please let Amanda know, as she will tailor make the music and even wear an appropriate outfit to tie in! Amanda is also able to provide a vocalist if required and dependent upon availability.
