The warmth and vitality of Cathy’s playing, her vast experience, and her varied selection of music has cemented her reputation as the leading event and wedding harpist in the Midlands and beyond, for the past 15 years.

Cathy delights clients, not only with her natural artistry, but also with her choice of music which always suits the particular occasion.

She has entertained notables from Frank Sinatra to the Prince of Wales, and has frequently played for British and foreign Royalty, including Prince Charles’s recent 60th birthday celebrations.

She made a huge difference to the atmosphere of the day. Her harp playing really set the mood! Kirsty, Wedding, Bucks

From her home near Cheltenham, she covers the area from Bristol to Birmingham and the West Midlands, including Gloucestershire, Worcestershire and the Cotswolds.

Cathy 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 also 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.

Cathy is also available to perform with either flute or harp, as a duo.
