What we do and FAQ's

About half an hour

Are you happy to perform outside?
Yes, weather permitting, in full shade, on a flat dry surface and out of the wind.

Do you provide your own lighting?
Ambient light is sufficient.

What do you do during your break(s)
As I'm completely acoustic, I have no means for leaving music running between sets.

My venue has a sound limiter – is that a problem?
A harp doesn't get anywhere near the volume for this to be an issue.
