“We booked Reidun for our civil ceremony in July this year. A brilliant professional and an excellent musician. Her repertoire is vast and the music is perfect for a wedding occasion. I would highly recommend her. 10 out of 10!!!” Tim & Rose
“You worked through a difficult time with us and in the end it was just came together and we were able to share your beautiful music with our friends and family on the most important day of our lives. We will never forget it. Thank you for being part of our wonderful day”. Hayley & Edgar
“Reidun’s elegant harp performance at our wedding ceremony was incredibly beautiful! Ethereal, resonant, elysian music – the quintessential wedding instrument!
Tremendous talent and an absolute pleasure-thank you Reidun”. Ellen & Edward
“We feel so blessed to have such a fabulous musician like Reidun to play for our wedding. She played so beautifully that it became one of the highlights of the whole ceremony that everyone was talking about. Not only did she perform wonderfully with all the various music pieces we asked for, she was there long before the ceremony and the Harp sound she produced was perfect for the little chapel. We can highly recommend Reidun for any couple’s special day, especially if you want to bring that ‘wow’ factor to your ceremony”. Brendan and Nikki
“You were a pleasure to work with and we really appreciate your flexibility as our wedding plans changed. Your traditional Irish music was exactly what we hoped for, both in choice of pieces and style. We enjoyed listening to your music during our roadtrip honeymoon thanks to your kind gift of a CD- it was lovely to be able to listen to your music again after the wedding. We would highly recommend you to any couple planning a wedding”. Emer & Michael 2021.
“I’d highly recommend Reidun for weddings and all occasions, she plays beautifully and we had her recently play at our wedding and she was brilliant couldn’t ask for any better, thanks again Reidun” Peter, Gougane Barra
“Reidun and Barry played for our church ceremony in July. They were truly outstanding! The music they played on the day was tasteful and the combination of Harp, whistle and Uileann Pipes created a lovely traditional sound, which was exactly what we were hoping for. They were extremely professional and helpful throughout the whole process. Overall we are delighted with Reidun and Barry and couldn’t recommend them highly enough. Thank you both!” Colm & Roisin.
We were delighted to have Reidun & Barry play for our ceremony and drinks reception recently (Sept 2021) in Skibbereen. Reidun’s harp playing and Barry’s whistle/pipes were beautiful, sensitive and set the scene for a great day. Both have a great repertoire of tunes from traditional to contemporary. Rainy Night in Soho was to be our 1st dance but because of Covid restriction on live bands we asked Reidun & Barry if could they do it for the ceremony. They did it brilliantly! Anyone who books Reidun and Barry for their wedding ceremony will be in great hands. Lovely people, beautiful music.

“Reidun is a wonderfully talented harpist. Booking her was made easier by being able to check out her repertoire on her website and YouTube. Even during the various lockdowns and changing restrictions she was so easy to contact and communicate with. On the day itself, even the snow and icy roads didn’t stop her. I think harp music is particularly nice with the smaller weddings but we chose to add Barry to accompany the harp. He is talented on many instruments. He also sang the Psalm for us. Great duo. Apart from the music, Reidun’s smile was very reassuring as I could see her throughout the ceremony while our friends and family sat behind us. Highly recommend!!” Eimear & Con
As for outdoor performances: I usually don’t play outdoors in the winter (between Mid-October & Mid-March). If we’re lucky and it’s dry and above 15 degrees centigrade I’m happy to play outdoors though! I’d need to be sheltered from the wind, if there is on the day, because wind interferes with the strings. As for temperature/dampness: the speed of the tunes will be affected by cold weather conditions. If it is cold and damp, my fingers will be stiff and the harp, usually kept at room temperature, will get out of tune. If it’s raining, an alternative location must be provided.
