Losing someone important to you can be emotionally devastating. I know this first hand as my father passed away not so long ago and we were unable to see him due to Covid.

Making arrangements to give your loved one the send-off he or she deserves can be overwhelming. Let me help to ease your worries somewhat by providing beautiful harp music and vocals as part of the ceremony to mark that special person’s life.

I perform at funerals in Churches, Crematoriums and at after gatherings and wakes. You can trust me to be mindful and caring, always happy to listen to any music requests and lend a helping hand when appropriate. I am only too pleased to learn new pieces that might not already exist in my large repertoire.

If there is something musically important to you and your loved one that needs to be included as part of their Remembrance, I will try to make sure it can happen. Always professional in my work, it gives me great joy to be able to provide music that touches people’s hearts and provides them some peace and comfort at such a sad and difficult time.
