Mary Jenkins - Celtic Harpist

This Celtic harpist has many years of experience and also sings. Her repertoire is very varied from old English music to Spanish, Scottish, Irish and Welsh music.
She also plays classical, baroque and many modern pieces from the shows, including Phantom of the Opera, Cats, The Sound of Music, Oliver, etc and can also play and sing many popular modern songs, including Titanic, Fields of Gold and Songbird.

She has played for many weddings and functions both in England and abroad and can make your event a happy and memorable occasion. In fact, her passion is her harp and she can adapt any special song you wish for your wedding, from Elvis Presley to the Beatles.

She has played the piano and sung from a very early age winning many first prizes at Festivals. About fifteen years ago she decided to take up the celtic harp loving the sound of the instrument and the possibility of combining voice with harp. Having studied with a teacher in Leicester, she took her harp to Andalucia in southern Spain where she played in their churches, in restaurants and at fiestas. It was here that she discovered a Spanish repertoire which adapted well to the celtic harp.

She then moved to the Isle of Wight where she played at most of the important wedding venues. She also worked for Independent Arts entertaining the elderly in Care Homes. She had a regular engagement at a hotel and played for many functions including private parties, anniversaries, garden parties and funerals.

She has provided relaxing music for many occasions in restaurants, private parties, baby blessings and funerals and also works with special needs providing Celtic harp with story telling and reminiscence work.
