Rachel's performance was outstanding and we have had many of our guests comment on how good she was.She arrived on time, play our choice of songs beautifully and created a nice atmosphere during our drinks reception. Thank you Rachel.

Rachel Hair - Clarsach

Rachel Hair playing the harp was brilliant, enchanting and very much enjoyed. Her music is very appropriate for fine dining and as an after dinner treat for guests. A delight to have had Rachel in our home. Thank you for being so professional and accommodating toward my interest in hiring your artist. I look forward to doing business again sometime!

Rachel Hair - Clarsach

The booking procedure was quick and easy and always emailed confirmation promptly and kept updated. We couldn't have asked for more from Rachel Hair and Pipe Major Stuart Mackenzie who were both excellent not only in their talent but in their attitude as well! Many thanks to all involved in making our wedding day so special!

Rachel Hair - Clarsach

Everyone thought Rachel's touch to my special day was superb. Because of traffic, I ended up 40 minutes late, however, Rachel kept playing. The music was just right for the occasion, she was brilliant. Please pass on my regards to her.
