Laura and I have been doing weddings together for many years. She is wonderful and so very talented. Her music is heavenly. She also has other musicians she can arrange to play with her--like flute and violin. I love hearing the wedding music Laura provides so expertly. I know I can always count on her professionalism and dedication. I highly recommend Laura!
Laura Byrne is an AMAZING harpist. She connects with the music like no other harpist I have ever heard. She plays from the heart so the music fits the ceremony with the finesse of a true professional. It is hard to explain the difference between Laura’s playing compared to other harpists, but it is something one can actually hear and feel. Hands down, she is my favorite harpist in our area - and she is a very kind and caring person, besides. Highly recommended!
