Weddings & Celebrations

Mike Parker is uniquely able to provide a range of harps and harp music to compliment any event, wedding or ceremony. Functions, drinks receptions and Wedding Breakfasts can be accompanied by any style of music from the 10th Century to contemporary tunes, so if your event is happening in a historical location, the music can be tailored to fit your taste.

Mike Parker has an extensive repertoire, is always happy to discuss music for the event, and to make suggestions. If a piece you would like is not in his repertoire, it can, subject to availability of the sheet music, be learned. Previous requests have ranged from instrumental versions of operatic classics to a ‘Savage Garden’ song, and Sousa marches… if the melody can be made to work on the harp, then it can be played.

Entertainment for functions can range from a focussed, structured presentation, to gentle, subtle background music; the harp is especially good for this, as it is less dominant than a piano, or string group, and will fill the air comfortably, still allowing your guests to chat. Again, this can be tailored to a specific, historical location, or a general mix from light classics to popular tunes.
