Thread Name: Help: Lever harp to play UK/Surrey wedding?
Subject: Lever harp to play UK/Surrey wedding?

Someone posted this request on the e-mail Harplist. She is getting married August 16 at Claremont, Surrey, UK and she wants a harp player - strings, not blues - to play for a small group of about 25. Not the formal Wedding March type of music. She would also prefer not to have a pedal harp or classical music. I assume that this would be a paying gig. If you know of anyone else who might be interested could you let them know too, please.

I will forward any replies either here in this thread or as PM's (personal messages) to her and then you can negotiate the rest yourself.

Some of her request:

"It appears I'm getting married .. :) .. in August (on the 16th), in an outdoor ceremony being held within a grove of yew trees in the grounds of a National Trust landscaped garden (Claremont, for those of you who might know Surrey). It will be a small ceremony of no more than 25 people, and wouldn't you know it, we thought it would be absolutely lovely to have a harper play at the appropriate bits of the ceremony (no, I do NOT want the Wedding March, it's not that kind of ceremony .. !)."

Thanks Helen
