Rhianwen was fantastic. She played during our 3 course meal and although there were 120 people in the room talking, you could hear the harp quite clearly.
I opted to let Rhianwen choose the music and she played beautifully during our formal dinner - I highly recommend it.
The guests thought it was fantastic and many comments were received today about how wonderful the harp was.
Thank you Rhianwen, hopefully your available again next year.

Rhianwen was wonderful. She arrived in good time, was very approachable and cheery, played an excellent variety of pieces, was very good at explaining the workings of her harp and fielded all our questions very amiably. I would highly recommend her.
