Wonderful musician and easy to work with
Leigh was very responsive to all of our questions concerning her performance. She made wonderful suggestions for songs - and was even willing to learn a new song that my daughter was considering.Sent on 01/13/2019
She was timely and able to assemble all of her own 'equipment' at the venue.
Trustworthy, great skills and an easy going attitude to our needs for the wedding is how I would describe Leigh.

Leigh is a beautiful Harpist and she makes working with her seem effortless.
It was so lovely to have Leigh play the Harp for our wedding ceremony. WeSent on 01/09/2019
chose many Italian inspired ballads, which really made our ceremony feel
special, such as it was straight out of a fairytale. Leigh was so easy and
great to work with. She has a website with excerpts of the songs she has
played in the past so the one hiring her can get a understanding of her
range. However, you do not have to choose a song directly from her website,
as she can play anything that you desire. For example, we asked her to
adapt the song Ship to Wreck, by Florence and the Machine, while we were
exiting the ceremony, and she did it for us, no problem. Leigh is very down
to earth, and she makes working with her seem effortless. She is only
interested in pleasing her clients and will make every effort to ensure
that each request they have is met. We got married outside on the grass,
which is not an ideal place to set up a harp, however, she found a way to
put a platform down and have someone hold her music so all of our guests
would be able to hear her playing. I highly recommend Leigh for any event,
wedding or otherwise. She truly is a talented harpist and will give your
event a special touch by playing music that you do not hear every day.
