Hello! I'm Scarlett, a Bristol based harpist.
I've been playing the harp since the age of 7, and performing professionally at weddings and events since the age of 14. I love live music. It's like the icing on the cake for an event in my eyes! I've recently bought my new Electro-acoustic Pedal Harp (see photo!). I love it to pieces, and have been getting more and more into using the harp with fx pedals and live looping to add a whole new layer to my music when desired. I love how the harp can be so beautiful, calming and serene but can also be fun and upbeat in ways you may never have expected!
Harpists are often stereotyped as being very posh and unapproachable. I aim to break that stereotype. I'm very friendly, down to earth and am very much able to laugh at myself. I want to feel accessible to my clients. I want them to feel like they can drop me an email or a call whenever. Planning a wedding is crazy stressful, and I really want my role within your day to be as stress free as possible.
I have nearly 10 years of happy clients behind me. I've played for weddings, corporate events, art galleries, care homes, on ships, for interactive theatre shows, circus shows, spooky halloween events, birthday parties, anniversaries, on top of the flying trapeze rig at Glastonbury festival, I even organised a community tour of over 100 streets in Bristol during the Covid-19 lockdown.
I am flexible and adaptable and I work hard because I genuinely care. No matter what event your organising, I would to hear from you and discuss how my music could be involved.
