Truly amazing - all our guests complimented how wonderful the music was. From getting in touch to the day they were so relaxed and easy to deal with even learning songs for us. The highest of recommendation to make any event really special.

Rachael and Margit were so lovely to work with and extremely accommodating in taking requests and playing a very diverse set of music for us. Their musicianship is stellar, and they added such a beautiful ambiance to our afternoon tea. Many of our wedding guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music and what a special touch they added to our day. We can't thank them enough!
Beautiful performance that was the highlight of my party! Thank you.
The whole process was nice and easy with quick answers to questions, billing was smooth and the act were fantastic and well received. We have used Warble on several occasions now and it has always gone well and we will continue to use in the future.
You were wonderful, thank you so much for setting the tone of our evening, lots of the guests commented that it was a great start to the evening. I hope we can book you again sometime!
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.
What time will you arrive at the venue?
At least an hour before the booking is due to start. This gives us plenty of time to set up, tune up and change in to our colour-matching gowns.
Will you need refreshments?
Just a glass of water or a coffee will normally do nicely, but you don't need to worry about that, we'll ask the staff when we arrive. If the booking is a long one then some sandwiches are really appreciated.
Do you need to take a break?
Yes, we usually play for 50 minutes then take a ten minute break. So if for example you have us booked for three hours we'd take two breaks within that time.
Do you play outside?
We're very happy to play outside as long as the weather is warm, dry and not windy, but please make sure you arrange this with us in advance. Stringed instruments can get damaged in hot sun so we'll need to make sure some adequate shade is available, usually the venue will have a gazebo or large parasol we can set up under.
Do you learn requests?
Absolutely! Nearly any tune is possible, just ask.
The venue has asked me if you have Public Liability Insurance - what do I need to do about that?
We do have PLI. The easiest thing is if you give the venue our contact details and we can deal with them directly and send them a copy of our certificates if they'd like to see them.
Will you be loud enough?
Both the harp and cello have a lovely, rich acoustic sound and carry well. For bigger bookings we provide our own amplification so the music can be heard whatever the size of your event.
