Solo Harp

Our solo harpist, Rachael, is a professional freelance harpist. She has been performing at weddings and other functions for over ten years as well as doing a diverse range of other musical work. Music is an important part of any event and Rachael is highly experienced at putting together a personalised programme that is just right for your occasion. Her repertoire is extensive and spans classical, folk, pop, jazz and original music. If there is a tune you love that isn’t on the list Rachael is always willing to learn a request or two.

Rachael works with bands and theatre projects both nationwide and all over the world. On live work, recorded projects and TV appearances she has worked with artists including Corinne Bailey Rae, Gilles Peterson, Susan Boyle and Jimmy Osmond. She is a regular on London’s jazz circuit performing at venues such as Ronnie Scott’s and the Soho Jazz Club, and she has performed for Sir Paul McCartney, premier league footballers and royalty.

Prices start at £250

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for your beautiful harp music. We had lots of lovely comments about it and when you played Danny Boy in the church there weren’t many dry eyes in the place. I can’t wait to see the video so I can listen to your playing in full. Thank you once again.

Just wanted to thank you so very much for the beautiful performance on Thursday at our auntie’s funeral, so many people said how lovely it was. We could not have asked for a better send off for Jane.

You made our day absolutely perfect, and thank you so much for taking the time to learn the song that was written for us. It was the beautiful finishing touch to our wedding.

Rachael is available for any type of event including weddings, functions, corporate events, christenings, funerals and Valentine’s Day dinners.  She covers Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Cheshire, Merseyside, Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Shropshire, North Wales and the Midlands, and is willing to travel further by agreement. She performs on a stunning French black and gold pedal harp made by Camac. The harp adds a beautiful aesthetic to any occasion and as an additional visual detail Rachael wears a gown to match your colour scheme, whatever you’ve chosen. She can be booked solo or with her harp and cello duo and provides her own amplification for larger events.
