Performing on a beautiful, bespoke harp with a honey-rich, resonant tone, the Scottish Harpist has received qualifications and accolades from the finest classical institutions in Scotland and Ireland, including the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Royal Irish Academy of Music and receiving additional certification from the London College of Music Diploma, recognising her exceptional skill as a harpist. Her Harp has been specially designed to be both portable, and to project sound to fill any venue. Her experience, confidence and commitment will help your event to run smoothly whilst you experience the magical sound of the Harp.

In addition to her extensive classical repertoire, the Scottish Harpist performs traditional standards from all over the world - from well known tunes to exploring more uncommon repertoires, pushing the boundaries of playing the harp.

We would like to say a big thank you for playing the harp so beautifully at our recent wedding. The sound of your harp was absolutely wonderful to hear and relaxed both our guests and indeed Jonathan and myself. You are clearly a gifted individual and it was such a joy and pleasure to have you perform for us. Thank you also for your input and help with our music choices which was much appreciated. We were so pleased that you were able to perform for the drinks reception, as well as the ceremony and felt it really created a superb and unique ambience for all our guests to enjoy. Thank you so much for being part of our special day and for making it extra special too.
