Live harp music is a unique and beautiful way to add the perfect touch to your special event.  An experienced live musician responds to you, your guests, and the environment, in a way that a recording simply can’t do.

 

 

Whether you are looking for tasteful and elegant music on the classical harp, sincere and heartfelt performances to mark an occasion, an engaging house concert of Celtic music, unusual and exciting harp combinations with DJ or cover-band, Alys Howe offers performances in varying styles and formats that are sure to entrance your guests or clients. The harp is one of the most ancient and beautiful instruments in the world, and nearly every culture at one time possessed its own unique form of harp music.  The Canadian music scene is as multi-cultural and diverse as the harp itself, and no matter what the occasion, the dramatic beauty of the harp will create an unforgettable atmosphere.
