Beautiful harpist for our wedding

5 stars - Katie M are Highly Recommended booked Katie M for their Wedding in Edinburgh December 2019

“Katie played at our wedding ceremony and drinks reception. Her music was just beautiful. Katie’s communication before the event was great. She also recommended pieces of music for the ceremony which was really helpful.”


Katie M provides the perfect ambiance for the gathering of a clan.

5 stars - Katie M are Highly Recommended booked Katie M for their event in Stirling October 2019

“Katie M provided per-dinner entertainment for a Highland family gathering and Birthday celebration. Katie’s harp background music, vocal accompaniment and, particularly, solo voice ‘puirt-a-beul’ was enjoyed by everyone present. The audience was most appreciative of Katie M’s sensitive arrangements of traditional Gaelic songe, and delighted when Katie responded to requests for favoured memories of the Outer Hebrides. We would have no hesitation in recommending Katie M’s performance for your special occasion.”

5 stars - Katie M are Highly Recommended booked Katie M for their event in Aberdeenshire

“Katie was courteous, friendly, approachable and very professional. She made contact straight after my booking was confirmed and she responded promptly to subsequent emails and phone calls. It was our first experience of a harpist, but one that has set the bar really high for any other harpist we may ever have to invite. With her warmth, gifted hands, wonderful harp tunes, and Celtic melodies, Katie exceeded our expectations! And our guests cherished every moment. She was a blessing indeed, and worth every pound. For the value she brought to us, we consider it a privilege to have had her at our event. I'll highly recommend Katie to anyone or group looking for a talented, warm, and professional Celtic Harpist.”
