Harpist EM5 Repertoire
She has an extensive repertoire of light classical, popular and traditional folk and celtic music.  You can arrange to visit, to discuss and choose the music you want for your ceremony, and the styles of music you like for the rest of the occasion. If you have one or two favourites which are not in my repertoire, she is happy, if it is possible, to learn one or two new pieces for your occasion.
