Christine is an accomplished and dedicated harpist, versed in both pedal and lever harp, and offers a wide-ranging repertoire of classical wedding music as well as traditional standards from all over the world.

Christine performs on a beautiful, bespoke harp with a honey-rich, resonant tone. Her classical repertoire includes Bach, Beethoven, Haydn and Handel and her folk repertoire varies from the the well-known (Danny Boy, Londonderry Air, Auld Lang Syne), to the more unusual (Hey Bystra Woda from Poland, Banks of the Ohio from America, Water Sound Shore from Scotland).

Real talent! Imogen Barford, Professor of Harp, Guildhall School of Music, London

And it doesn’t stop there – Christine also performs modern classics in a truly original way, arranging songs from artists such as Whitney Houston, Snow Patrol, Westlife and Metallica to name just a few of her eclectic and imaginative choices. Film themes and lighter, jazzier sounds are also available.

Christine has received qualifications and accolades from the finest classical institutions in Scotland and Ireland, including the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Royal Irish Academy of Music and receiving additional certification from the London College of Music Diploma, recognising her exceptional skill as a harpist.

Christine now performs as a freelance harpist and also tutors in Scotland, but performs all over the UK. Her harp has been specially designed to be both portable, and to project sound to fill any venue. A consummate professional, her experience, confidence and commitment will help your event to run smoothly.
