    Beautiful, elegant

    Laura Byrne is an amazing harpist! We had her play our ceremony & cocktail hour at our April wedding at the Umstead and it truly made the event that much more beautiful and elegant! From our first meeting with Laura to the day of everything was smooth. She plays beautifully and has a great selection of classics as well as new hits so you are sure to find just what you are looking for. I had no prior experience of ceremony music so meeting with Laura and listening to her expertise was very helpful in crafting the feel we were going for. Can not recommend enough!

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!

Rev. Barbara Lodge Rev. Barbara Lodge Wedding Officiants

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!
