The Derbyshire Harpist will endeavour to accommodate your requests and if given plenty of notice, can learn a particular piece of music for your special occasion.

As usual, the whole process of searching, booking and event went very well. The Derbyshire Harpist was absolutely brilliant. She is so lovely, and the music was just perfect. It made a very special evening even better. Thank you.

Thank you very much for playing your harp so beautifully at our wedding at Kedleston Hall. We really liked working with you and wish you all the best for your future.
We give you a bespoke price based on the exact location of your event. The pricing below is based on a central location for your area so you have an idea of what your price will be. The exact price will be given in the booking process after you’ve provided the location details.
Do you play outside?
I'm not able to play my large concert harp outside but can offer the smaller lever harp to play outside. The harp and I both need to be outside of direct sunlight and on solid dry ground. Wind can also be a problem but my weather threshold is about the same as your guests!
How do you get around?
I have an estate car, padded covers and a very good harp trolley. Flights of stairs can be a problem so do ask before booking. Unfortunately the harp isn't folding or comes apart!
How much space do you need?
I need at least 2 metres squared to accommodate the harp, music stand and myself.
