Anna Burton - Harpist Feedback

The harpist helped our 50 Wedding Anniversary to be such a success. She arrived and quietly set up her harp without any fuss and likewise did the same at the end of her performance. The music was lovely and was very much appreciated by all of our guests. I can thoroughly recommend her and would have no hesitation in having her play for me in the future.

Mr John Gregory,

She played during my daughters wedding breakfast a week ago.The atmosphere she created was amazing.Every wedding guest appreciated her talent and the selection of music played.Thank you so much for making this an extra special day! I would highly recommend her to everyone

Lynn Parr,

She played at our daughter's Wedding on the 27th June, 2015 and everyone said what a beautiful atmosphere it created. She certainly helped make the day truly memorable. I would have no reservation in recommending her.

Vivienne J. Finney, (June, 2015)

Thank you so much! Could not be happier with your performance at my daughter and son in law's wedding. It was a beautiful day, made all the more special having your angelic music in the background.


She played background music for us at our Christmas Drinks Party. It was absolutely delightful, all our friends were very impressed. Thank you for making our party so special.

Bridie S.,

She played at my son's wedding. Given her training and background it was in no doubt that she would be able to play. Her wedding music was indeed delightful. A number of guests commented on how inspired it was to have hired a harpist because her playing was beautiful and relaxing and filled the air without being over powering. (It wasn't really my idea though. I saw from the wedding venue site that others had employed a harpist!) Additionally, Dealing with her was simple and straightforward. I would recommend her to everyone. Even my dad was impressed.

Tracy May,
