Weddings

Reidun is available for weddings, as a solo harpist, or in various duo settings, like with uilleann piper/multi-instrumentalist/singer Barry Lynch, with violinist Brendan O’Sullivan, or with classical singer Carrie O’Sullivan. Furthermore she can be booked with a group setting of 3 or more musicians, e.g. Trio Inish (see below).

She is based near Killarney, Co. Kerry and travels nationwide. A harpist with over 25 years of professional experience, Reidun plays for church ceremonies and civil/humanist/spiritual wedding ceremonies alike, and can also be booked for drinks receptions, to perform during the meal or the next day. If you book both ceremony & drinks reception, you’ll get a discount for the package!

Please feel free to contact Reidun if you have any specific wishes or questions (see contact form below).

The big harp fits perfectly into these elegant surroundings!

Duo with Uilleann Piper/Singer Barry Lynch:

Both musicians are available for both civil and religious wedding ceremonies, as well as drinks receptions, as a duo or accompanied by one or two more musicians.

The Uilleann Pipes (Irish bagpipes) are very suitable for a wedding ceremony, especially the Entrance and Recessional.

As for the drinks reception part, the duo can offer a wide range of Irish traditional dance tunes, lively songs, slow tunes, and even song requests.

Barry plays Uilleann Pipes, Mandolin, Banjo, Low & Tin Whistles, Harmonica, and knows a wide range of Songs.

Please to not hesitate to get in contact if you are thinking about a particular song to be performed on your special day. Barry’s repertoire is vast and a list of his songs would be too long to fit onto this website!

Outdoor performances:

Reidun is available for outdoor performances – weather permitting! This small Irish harp is very easy to transport and can be carried to the “wildest” places in nature, e.g. onto a cliff…

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.
