I am a professional harpist based in the West Midlands. I provide music entertainment for weddings, parties and other events.
What kind of events do you usually serve?
I play at weddings (ceremony and reception), corporate events, funerals and private parties.
How long do you play for?
I can play for any required time, however if it is longer than 1.30 minutes I will require 10 minute breaks every 50 minutes for a drink refreshment. If I am required to play longer than 3 hours I will require a longer break with food and drink refreshments.
Do you have your own PA and lighting?
When playing solo harp I do not require either of these.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
How much space do you require?
When playing solo I require an area of 2 meter by 2 meter, when playing in duo, trio or quartet that space has to be times by the number of people playing.
My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
I can play any tune you would like as long as I am given over a month notice to have plenty of time to buy/arrange and learn the music.
How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
If playing over 1.5 hour I will require a 10 minute break every 50 minutes for drink refreshments. If playing over 3 hours I will require an additional 20 minute break for food and drink refreshments.
