Emma Christian - Harpist

This harpist is an experienced and knowledgeable professional and has in the past worked for most of the major orchestras in the UK, as well as touring abroad. She has played in the West End for shows, and at venues all over the UK including Madame Tussauds London, the Grosvenor Hotel Chester, York Minster, Manchester Cathedral, NEC  Birmingham, Belvoir Castle, Tatton Park Cheshire and the Gibside Estate Newcastle.

She enjoys playing for weddings and brings a touch of magic to the day with her  live music performance. Her repertoire is vast and ranges from Bach and Handel to Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Wonder and Oasis.  Her harps include an antique gilded pedal harp, a modern concert harp and a bespoke Celtic harp made in New Zealand, from native timbers.

She also has an amplifier available which means the instruments are clearly audible even in a busy function or for an outdoors drinks reception.

She performed at our wedding, and not only was she a brilliant musician, she was also a very nice person. She was punctual, beautifully presented and a hit with all our guests. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who is planning a wedding or any similar function. Thank you.
