About this Act

Scottish Harp and Guitar Duo Celtic Twist have a great sound, perfect for wedding ceremonies and for any private function where you are looking for something refined and elegant to create an ambiance no one will forget. The romantic sounds of the Scottish harp blend and dovetail with the guitar in this unique-sounding combination.

Philippa (harp) and Dave (guitar) have an extensive repertoire. They arrange Scottish and Irish traditional music, popular pieces from the classical repertoire, more modern classics and they also write a lot of their own music. Performing acoustically, they create a beautifully relaxing and subtle atmosphere for any occasion.

They are happy to talk with you regarding your wedding ceremony soundtrack, give advice when requested and listen to your suggestions and requests. They are very popular for wedding ceremonies, but are often asked to play for a small reception as well.

As regards the ceremony, Phil and Dave will perform for 20 mins prior to the arrival of the bride, to entertain guests while they wait. They will then play for the arrival and entrance of the bride, the signing of the register and the exit of the bride and groom.

Phil and Dave both sing and are happy to do so if requested. If however you prefer an entirely instrumental performance that is fine.
