I’ve won the Gigmasters 2015 Award for Top Harpist in the USA! This is my second time to win the Rising Star Award, which means I was the top booked harpist on Gigmasters for 2015 and 2014, and earned the most revenue of any harpist on Gigmasters in the entire country. My area is the New York City area, including Long Island, CT, Philly and PA, Maryland, etc., and the gigs I book are either solo harp, or events where I sing and play, including weddings, corporate events, cocktail hours, house concerts, galas, etc.

Saturday, June 20th, I will be playing with my full band at Webster Hall – a set of my original music, plus my signature David Bowie cover! I’m playing a 45-minute set, the tickets are $15 and that gets you in for the entire night — after my set, I’ll also be playing as a sideman with the headliner, The Peter Ulrich Collaboration.

As she was eating her dessert, Mom said… Continue reading
