The harp is rather ‘precious’ so to speak and has specific needs in regards to environmental factors. Some things you need to consider include:
- The harp must not get wet or damp under any circumstances. If you engage me to play at your wedding or function, you must have a contingency plan for inclement weather as I will not be able to play outside if it is raining, or if rain is likely unless adequate shelter is provided.
- The harp must not be placed in a very hot environment and preferably not in direct sunlight on a hot day
- The harp needs to be placed on a flat, dry and stable surface. You will need to ensure that this is provided.
- If it is windy and I am playing the harp outside, the wind sometimes makes a noise as it resonates though the harp. I think this sound is rather delightful, however it may not be a noise you expect to hear. Just letting you know so that it doesn’t surprise you!
