Whatever the nature of your celebration – wedding, birthday or anniversary party,

Cathy stands out from the crowd with the warmth and vitality of her natural artistry, wide experience, and selection of music which always suits the occasion.

From her home near Cheltenham, she covers the area from Bristol to Birmingham and the West Midlands, including Gloucestershire, Worcestershire and the Cotswolds. She also plays in the Cotswold Flute and Harp Duo and Blue Flamingo (cello and harp duo).

With a repertoire of background music ranging from favourite classics to the great standards of Gershwin, the Beatles and the West End Shows, Cathy has delighted clients, not only with her natural artistry, but also with her choice of music which always suits the particular occasion.

Cathy has been providing music for special occasions to the highest standard for over 15 years, and has entertained notables ranging from Frank Sinatra to the Prince of Wales.

She has played for events at all of the top London hotels, in stately venues such as St James’s and Hampton Court Palaces, Sudeley and Highclere Castles, and many National Trust properties; at the Royal Academy, National Gallery and Natural History Museum; and for many high - level corporate and private events including numerous occasions when members of the Royal Family have been present. She has performed on the high seas aboard the QEII, and for over ten years she was the Resident Harpist playing for afternoon tea at London’s five-star Le Meridien Hotel in Piccadilly. She has also held residencies in New York City, as well as playing in many top venues there such as the Empire State Building and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

What people say Help

  • Cathy was fantastic - not only on the day, but also leading up to the wedding helping us to pick out the music. Always very friendly and a pleasure to deal with.

    Alison, Wedding, Ledbury, Herefordshire, October 2016
  • Cathy attended our wedding on Sunday and I can honestly say she made a huge difference to the atmosphere of the day. Her harp playing really set the mood. Everyone at the wedding commented on how lovely it was to have her playing. She was fantastic.
