Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to questions you might have about booking Rita.
How much does it cost to book you and what area can you cover?
I am currently based in Birmingham, but I cover all of the Midlands Area (Leicestershire, Worcestertershire, Warwickshire, Coventry, Nottingham, Gloucestershire, MIlton Keynes, etc). Prices start from 180 Pounds for an hour play depending on the location. Any additional hour is an extra 60 Pounds. If you would like to get an exact quote, please fill out the contact form, or you can alternatively email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How big space do you need?
I need maximum of 1,5m x 2m room space for my harp, chair and music stand.
Can you change location during the event?
Yes, for instance I can move from one room to another between ceremony and drink reception or wedding breakfast. Unless, there are stairs involved, I can do the moving on my own, but if there are stairs to climb, I will need a helping hand during moving my harp. It takes maximum 5 mins to do the manouver.
Can the harp be played outside?
In case of completely dry and warm weather it can be played outside. I have to place my harp on a solid surface as it cannot sink into the ground or get muddy. There is a surcharge of 25 Pounds if you wish me to play outside.
Can I choose songs that are not included in your repertoire?
Yes, with reasonable time notice, I am happy to discover new choices of repertoire up to 2 new songs. Please let me know in advance, so I can check whether your song is playable on the harp.
Do you need amplification?
I don't use any amplification. The harp projects perfectly even in a big hall. If you wish me to be amplified, please check if the venue can provide and set up the equipment.
Do you have any specific need during the event?
I only need a comfortable chair and glass of non-alcoholic drink. I have to take a break of ten minutes at every hour, but if you are booking me for more than two hours, I would be grateful, if you could supply me with some light snacks or a sandwich, which I can take during my break.
