I was born in Wales, beginning harp lessons in Primary School, continuing my studies at the Royal College of Music and Drama during my teens, then studying music at the University of Manchester. I played with the National Youth Orchestra of Wales and the Halle Youth Orchestra. From a young age, I have performed on the harp for a variety of audiences. I have recently performed at Holkham Hall for their Christmas tours. During Christmas 2017, I performed live on Radio Suffolk. I have played at many weddings, charity and corporate events and have performed for 15 years.
I am happy to work to your specifications and can take requests. Most things sound lovely on the harp. You read harp music the same way as piano music, therefore, most piano pieces are transferable to the harp. I am happy to be flexible to meet your specific requirements. On the day: The harp has an extended sound board so does not require amplification. When performing at your event, I would arrive at the venue at least 30 mins prior to playing time, to tune the harp and put it in the correct place. If you have chosen the option of me playing the electric harp, I would require a plug socket to amplify the harp. Should you wish to have me play outside, I would require covering, to protect the wood from the sun e.g. parasol
Playing for an extra hour
Beautiful music Zoe played at our wedding reception on Saturday 2nd June. We left the choice of music to Zoe and she played a mixture of classical and modern pieces. She played the harp beautifully and created a wonderful atmosphere which our guests were delighted with. Zoe was very approachable and friendly and we really enjoyed having her there. She always communicated promptly and was a pleasure to meet. We could not recommend her highly enough. She was amazing!- Gill Wood
Wedding Thank YOU so much Zoe, it was really lovely. Granted i did miss most of you, but Stephen was actually choked up at the surprise of you playing, particularly when you played 1000 years. We were meant to get married last October so that his sister could be there - we found out she had terminal cancer in June last year, but she passed away in September, hence we had to postpone. That song was very special to Stephen as it reminded him of his sister. It was like she was there with us when you played-
Norwood Park, Southwell Zoe played the harp for our wedding in March and it was absolutley beautiful. She played all the songs we asked for and our guests commented on how lovely it was to have something different like this for the ceremony. Zoe was very professional and and It all went very smoothly.-
Charles Stanley Group Zoe was professional and friendly from the moment I contacted her to play at our Norwich office 30th Anniversary reception. Zoe played beautifully, adding to the atmosphere of the evening and impressing our guests. I would highly recommend her for your event.-
Doubletree HIlton - September 2017 My daughter and her fiancé first met Zoe at a wedding fayre. They were impressed by the playing and thought that this would make a very different addition to their recent wedding day in September 2017. Zoe was easy to deal with and assisted in the choices of music. On the day Zoe played during the ceremony and then as background music during the reception. This was a great accompaniment, particularly as Zoe played well known tunes and even some requests.-
