Sultans, kings, prime ministers, world leaders, royalty...maybe even genies...British harpist, Wedding Harpist Melbourne B has enthralled audiences from all over the world and from all walks of life with her playing, from performing in caves to palaces, in flat- bottomed boats from Florida to Lake Erie, to Arabian dhows on the Indian Ocean!
Wedding Harpist Melbourne B has performed on her bright blue 47 string electro-acoustic harp, aptly named The Big Blue. The great thing about this particular harp, Wedding Harpist Melbourne B says, "When I am doing outside gigs, it can just be plugged directly into the amp and...off we go!"
Originally from Britain, she also studied in the US and France. She has performed extensively throughout the Middle East, in Jordan, United Arab Emirates, and in particular Oman where she taught the harpists of the Sultan of Oman’s 'Royal Oman Symphony Orchestra', and was the resident harpist for the eminent guests of the Sultan when they visited Oman. Four years ago she arrived on the shores of Australia, where in Darwin she performed concerti with the Darwin Symphony Orchestra, and has developed a chamber music recital series called “All things Music”.
Winner of numerous awards and prizes for her playing, Wedding Harpist Melbourne B recorded for Virgin Records: French Music with the English Chamber Orchestra and the Allegri String Quartet. Although she performs as a concerto artist, soloist, and in chamber music recitals, she believes her forte is in performing light music from musicals, popular opera, jazz and even some Led Zeppelin and Metallica.
Wedding Harpist Melbourne B is now based in Melbourne and continues to play worldwide as well on a very regular basis in Australia where she also plays performs as a duo with violin.
