Lynnette Jones - Harpist

Originally from Ireland, this harpist graduated with a Bachelor of Music Degree from Edinburgh University in 1984. Thereafter she trained and worked as a music teacher in a secondary school. Her love of the harp began in 1989 when she was given a small Celtic harp as a gift, and was requested to play at a family wedding.

This was the start of a long and close association with this beautiful instrument, and it wasn’t long before she received regular requests to perform at weddings and functions. Eventually she decided to stop teaching to pursue a career playing the harp.

Having now achieved a Performers’ Diploma on the harp and a Masters Degree at Bangor University, specialising jointly in the study of Music of the Celtic Countries and in Performance on the Harp, this harpist has now established a busy and successful career as a freelance harpist in North West England and North Wales. She offers a wide repertoire of music in many different styles ranging from Classical, Celtic, Modern and Bollywood, on both the large concert harp and smaller Celtic harp, tailored to create the perfect ambience for the particular special event.

Your harp complimented the ceremony and drinks reception perfectly , I knew we had to book you a year ago and you were exceptional , professional and just so lovely xx I look forward to seeing your Coronation street episode and hear you play again , take care xxx

Deborah,

She was the harpist for our Wedding day and we couldn't have found anyone better! From the first day I contacted her with queries, the communication was great. She always got back to me the very same day. I asked if she could play a specific song that's special for me and my husband which was not in her repertoire and she was more than happy to do so which was lovely! She arrived early with her husband as he was our photographer and she set up in good time before the guests arrived. She played the harp beautifully and after the ceremony I got to meet her in person for the first time. She was absolutely lovely and I'm glad she was a part of our big day. I would also like to mention her husband Richard who was our photographer for the day. He also did an amazing job! He was very professional but also made the experience very fun! The photos we've received are perfect. We would highly recommend both of them for any event. Thank you.

Ellie,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your performance at Simon and Kelly's wedding at the weekend. it was very much appreciated. There were many memories made and they will last Simon and Kelly a lifetime. I will certainly recommend you to my friends. Everyone was very impressed with your playing and music so again please accept our thanks. I look forward to hearing you play again in the future.

Joan,

Just a little note to thank you so much for playing the harp at our wedding at Lake Vyrnwy on 5th August. You had lots of compliments from the guests and it sounded absolutely beautiful when we were signing the register. We are very grateful for your contribution to making our wedding so wonderful.

Emily and Jack,

Thank you so very much for performing at our wedding, we both really loved it. As I was facing forward when the bride came in I was not aware of her presence until I heard your rendition of Ruby love by Cat Stevens. I was absolutely thrilled about it and your playing throughout the day was impeccable. You made the atmosphere of the ceremony so very special and everyone thought your music was fantastic. I am so glad I booked you, thank so very much for making our wonderful day.

Paul,
