About this Act

Alina is one of the most exciting harpists based in Scotland. She has had the honour of playing at Scottish and European Parliaments, at the Queen’s 80th-birthday celebrations at Balmoral and at the King of Thailand’s birthday celebrations in Bangkok.

Alina’s music is available for religious, civil and humanist ceremonies, wedding breakfasts, dinners and receptions.

Her comprehensive catalogue of over 200 pieces includes classical, jazz and world traditional music. She plays “Salisbury” pedal harp and “Aida” clarsach. Both harps are uniquely fitted with electric pick-ups and can be appropriately amplified if required. Both instruments can be moved to various locations (indoors or outdoors) during an event if necessary.

Free consultation is available for you to discuss any special requests. Alina will help you to create a magical programme tailored to your individual wishes.

Also, if you would like to complement the tender tones of the harp, the elegant combination of a Harp and Flute duo or beautiful Harp, Flute and Vocalist Trio is also available
