About this Act

Meredith is very much in demand for weddings and other celebrations and, increasingly so for corporate events. You too, could captivate and delight your guests with a touch of subtle sophistication; the beautiful enchanting quality of the harp.

From Bach to Bollywood; the harp is acoustically designed to add a distinctive style. Meredith's extensive repertoire, which includes many of her own arrangements, will bring that “unique selling point” to your occasion. 

Meredith doesn’t play her valuable instrument out of doors, although by open patio doors and using an amplifier works well at most venues assuming reasonable proximity of the guests

Testimonial

"Good Evening Meredith,

Rich and I would like to thank you for making our day really special, the music was absolutely beautiful and the harp was a stunning centre piece for our post ceremony drinks. Your music created a magical atmosphere we will never forget."
