Perfect for weddings, cocktail parties, corporate hospitality and other exclusive events, harp music will enchant your guests with its melodious lilting sound whilst remaining soft and unobtrusive. 

Ornate and portable, the harp is a delightful alternative to more traditional forms of background music.

This London Harpist offers a professional and bespoke service to suit your needs.
