Emma Durkan - Harpist - Saltcoats, Scotland Event Location: Dundee 1st April 2018
Emma played harp and fiddle at our wedding in April 2018. She was incredible. From the moment we first got in touch with her, she was friendly and professional. She facilitated all our requests. On the day she played beautifully. I'll never forget the moment I walked down the aisle to her rendition of our chosen song. Many guests commented they'd enjoyed her music throughout the ceremony and drinks reception. I would highly recommend her.

So many people have commented on how much they enjoyed the music... I'm sure that people were dancing because they couldn't resist your fiddle playing. Also it was delightful to be able to talk between dances, yet also listen to and enjoy your harp playing. Your contribution to the success of our day is immeasurable. You are a delightful musician and charming too!
