The Music I Play...

I play a lap-held medieval harp.

On this intriguing instrument, I play medieval music, as well as my own arrangements of renaissance songs, folk songs, world music and spiritual chants. I also create my own improvisations and original compositions.

Harp Music for your Event

I am available to play contemplative harp music, at retreats, ceremonies, and small gatherings. I play without amplification, so a good acoustic is needed. I can travel within Cornwall, and possibly further afield by negotiation.

 

Sound Baths

For a more varied sound experience, I offer a half-hour 'Sound Bath' for group retreats, workshops and mindful gatherings. My Sound Baths interweave medieval harp music with a selection of drums, chimes, singing bowls and song. Listeners usually lie on the floor, with myself and my instruments in the centre. The music is gentle and meditative, allowing emotional release and deep relaxation.

 

Private Harp Visit

I also offer to play for people who are housebound or near their end-of-life. It may be their birthday, an anniversary, or perhaps you just want to arrange something lovely to make their time easier. I will bring my medieval harp to your loved one's chair side or bedside, and play some gentle, soothing harp music, with compassion and loving intent.

 

The Rewards

I have often been told that the music I create transports people to a beautiful and soothing place, that it helps them relax fully and deeply. In other cases it enables people to access their locked emotions and grief. Afterwards, may come a feeling of release and greater peace.

 

Book a Visit

As a rough guide, I charge £100 for up to 30 minutes of live music.
