It's good to talk

It's good to talk

Q. Do you hold one-to-one meetings with your couples?

A. Janet Wilson says: A meeting is an important part of the planning process. It gives the musician and the couple the chance to talk through all the arrangements, as well as performing music face-to-face.

Don't forget to find out what style of music they play. Harps are often stereotyped as classical, so many couples are surprised to hear that we don't specialise in that particular genre but in alternative, crossover, contemporary and original music. You may even find that they'll compose a piece especially for you, as we do.

The meeting is also a key time to go through any other questions you may have. For example, it's important to ask whether your entertainers have PAT certificates and public liability. Your venue will require these for any performances using electrical equipment such as amplification and microphones.

It may also be useful to know if they perform at more than one event a day. If they book by event rather than time, as we do, there'll be no problem if you're running late.
