A million family things. I’m all over the place.

A Nightingale Sang in Berkley Square

Performing at The Duke of Cornwall Hotel in Plymouth.

After a happy, hectic week of friends and weddings, I decided to use this Sunday afternoon to practice a bit of harp and attempted to video a little bit. Sorry about the blur – I’m shy! 🙂

This is one of my favourite jazz standards, written by Manning Sherwin, and I hope you like it!

Hello! Hannah here!

I’m currently taking requests for harp covers and will be recording and uploading the results to youtube! I’m happy to attempt absolutely anything… well, anything possible (things like “Flight of the Bumble Bee” might be a bit of a bother). Requests for folk, heavy metal, jazz and pop are all welcome – I’ll try them all!

Feel free to request flute pieces too – If you want to hear a cool jazz version of “God Save the Queen”, or a Jethro-Tull-style rendition of Adiemus, I’ll do it – Make these suggestions as crazy and wacky as you like!

Can’t wait to hear what you come up with! Just leave a comment or send me a tweet: @Hannah Sterry

Harpist for Hire!

Hannah Sterry - Harpist based in Salcombe, South Hams, Devon.

Juggling a lot of hobbies at once isn’t easy.

Currently I’m juggling a full time Open University course with a part-time job, music lessons, gigs, learning to drive and somehow still find time to see the boyfriend. Add Sterry Cartoons to that as well, and it seems like my mind is trying to run off in about ten directions at once.

You might think that I’d be trying to cut back, but no…

I have decided to become a wedding harpist.

And, instead of hiding the pricing, I’ve decided to be transparent about it. If you’re really lucky I might even include my pricing equation!

Harpist Hire for Private Events

Currently, for private events in Kingsbridge, Salcombe and the surrounding area, my basic rate is £125*, based on two 45 minute sets (£225 at peak times such as Christmas and New Year’s Eve).

For events outside this area, my travel cost and any other expenses will be included in the price.

Private Event Hire = £125 (+ £100 at peak times) + Travel Cost

I’d be more than happy to tailor the set to meet your requirements and welcome any particular song requests that you may have!

If there’s anything I can do for you, please don’t hesitate to contact me via the contact form here. It doesn’t matter how small the request/question is! I’ll be happy to hear from you!
