Susanna is a traditional harpist based in the East Midlands of England. She is an experienced professional musician and her harp music has been a part of many special occasions. 

Susanna was born into a musical family and has played many instruments over the years. She has had a lifelong fascination with the harp though she came to playing the instrument relatively late. She has studied with Jean Hudson a traditional and Renaissance music specialist and some of the best known Scottish harpists such as Catriona McKay and Charlotte Petersen.

She is an experienced professional harpist with a large client base. She is resident harpist at Woodborough Hall and has played at events throughout the United Kingdom. Susanna plays at over 70 weddings per year in addition to solo performances, corporate functions and restaurant bookings.

Although rooted in the traditional music of Britain and Ireland, Susanna loves experimenting with other genres including blues, rock and even metal. She also has a large repertoire of classical and pop music which is popular with clients choosing wedding music. 

Susanna plays a Pilgrim Progress, a large lever harp which has a rich tone and stunning clean design which complements both historic and contemporary settings. The lever harp is smaller than the large orchestral pedal harp, which means Susanna can easily get her harp upstairs and into tight spaces. She has a choice of two sound systems; a powerful but compact amp, which is ideal for venues at which space is at a premium. She also has a small PA system with speakers that is great for larger events.
