  • How far are you prepared to travel? Do you charge travel fees?

    I am a full time professional musician and I frequently travel across the UK. I generally drive to and from a booking on the same day, only charging fuel costs in addition to the music fee if required. If the event is at such a distance that it necessitates overnight accommodation I include a bit extra for B&B. I also sometimes perform abroad.

    When will you arrive at the venue?

    I arrive at the venue a minimum of an hour before the event to allow plenty of time to find out where I’m playing and to set up and tune up.

    What type of harp and music do you play?

    I play Celtic harp, which has a very personal, romantic, intimate tone. Made by Pilgrim Harps who are well established, high quality harp makers whom I recommend to my students when they are choosing a new harp. I play a mixture of classical and Celtic music and some renaissance pieces.

    What is the difference between Celtic and Classical harp?

    They sound very similar but the main difference is that orchestral harps have foot pedals for changing key, whereas Celtic harps have semi-tone levers. I have a lever on every string which means I can play in any key and often change key whilst playing. Celtic harps are very portable as they are smaller than orchestral harps. This can be very useful at weddings if required to move to different locations during the course of the day.

    Is your celtic harp loud enough for outdoor events?

    I often play acoustically, especially for wedding ceremonies, but I also can use high quality, compact amplification equipment for larger outdoor events or during the drinks reception or meal when required.

    Do you have PAT testing and Public Liability Insurance?

    Yes, my equipment is annually PAT Tested and certificated. I am a member of the MU with full Public Liability Insurance - £10,000,000.

Hi Ramona, I am delighted to let you have my feedback on the Ceilidh Band. You were brilliant from the minute we made the first enquiry. You answered all of the questions we had with speed and efficiency and were so much more helpful than the others we contacted. The booking process was very straight forward and we were thoroughly pleased with the outcome. The band were just brilliant, so enthusiastic! So many people after our wedding commented that they had really enjoyed the dancing and music - it was a great way for all ages and abilities to get up and dance (or at least attempt too!) I would not hesitate in recommending them. Many thanks for all of your assistance.Julie, Norwich
