Special Event Background Music

Lorin Grean at wedding special event

Make your special events even more magical!

Weddings, holiday celebrations, art openings, dinners-all occasions are enhanced by the addition of live music.

I play a Celtic harp, also known as a folk harp. It differs from the huge pedal harps that you see in symphony orchestras; it stands about 4 feet tall, has 33 strings (about 5 octaves), and utilizes levers rather than pedals for key changes. The sound produced by these two different harps is very similar. Because the harp is an instrument that people don't see every day, it evokes an exciting atmosphere for your event and lets guests know that something truly special is about to happen.

My repertoire is comprised mostly of music that I have composed, with a small amount of traditional tunes from Ireland. I would describe my style of playing as light and easy-going. If desired, I have a lovely voice and can sing songs as well.

I have amplification available for the harp that is either battery powered or electric.

I want to let you know that if you have a lot of specific song requests, then I may not be the harpist for you. I play from memory, without the clutter of a library of sheet music or music stand. I have played harp professionally since 1991, and have developed an acute sensitivity to choose music that is appropriate for what is happening. I am sure that my instrumentals will provide a lovely background canvas for your event.
