Outdoor Events:

  • The harp must be kept on a dry and level surface, out of direct sunlight, away from water and strong winds, and at reasonable temperatures and humidity levels. My harps are an expensive and delicate instruments and I must protect them at all costs.
  • If, during the course of the performance, it begins to rain (even a slight mist) or snow, I will immediately cover my harp and move indoors or to my vehicle no matter what else is going on.  Harps are made of wood, and the slightest moisture can ruin the finish and permanently damage the instrument.  Please understand why I must protect the substantial investment I have made in my instruments and other equipment.
  • All outdoor events require a back-up location. For outdoor events with no back-up indoor location at or near the same site, performance will be exclusively on lever harp.
  • In the event of inclement weather, I will not be able to perform outside, and alternate arrangements must be made. If weather conditions make it impossible to perform, the full amount of the contract is nevertheless due.
  • No outdoor bookings are accepted during the months of November, December, January, February, or March.

Notes:

  • All dates are held with a 50% non-refundable deposit. The minimum deposit is $100.  After we discuss your event, I will send you a contract to sign and return to me with your deposit.  All contracts must be returned by the date stated at the top of the agreement, or your hold on the date is forfeited and I will open it to other bookings. Your event is not considered booked until I receive your signed contract and deposit.
