Enjoy live harp music, harp with violin, or piano with violin for your next special occasion!

Rachel Avery is a folk harp teacher in Madison, WI. She has been playing harp since age 16 (and piano since age 6) and has studied with harpist Beatriz Martin-Ruiz. Rachel has extensive experience playing both outdoor and indoor events, from weddings to dinner and birthday parties to award ceremonies. She typically performs on her 5-octave Dusty Strings celtic harp, but she also has mid-sized and smaller harps available for performance. Terri Pepper has been playing the violin since age 8, and enjoys playing a variety of musical styles including classical and celtic. She has performed in several community and university orchestras.

Enjoy music from the celtic traditions or choose from more standard classical and sacred repertoire. Special requests, favorite movie themes, and pop songs are welcome too!

The celtic harp is ideal for more intimate gatherings as well as larger events, and the music varies from the lively to the sublime. The violin adds even more complexity and beauty to the sound. You can also choose to have Rachel play the piano instead of the harp for indoor locations that have a piano. A free consult is available for interested parties prior to signing the contract, and there is no obligation with the consult.

Rachel and Terri are especially excited that Marriage Equality is now nationwide. We are happy to play for all wedding ceremonies!

Rachel and Terri were fantastic! To help us choose our music, Rachel played for us over the phone (because my fiance and I couldn't make it to Madison for an in-person meeting). She helped us select the perfect music. I appreciated their humor and flexibility, and of course their top-notch musical talent! I would recommend them in a heartbeat.

Rachel & Terri were absolutely fantastic at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour! Rachel was amazing on both the piano and harp and Terri rocked the violin. They were easy to work with, open to our ideas/requests and had many suggestions of their own. We even had the chance to meet them prior to the event and have a personal mini-concert to hear them play. Rachel & Terri were able (and very willing!) to learn two songs specifically for our event AND rehearsed with our singer! Our guests raved about the quality of the music and it added a very romantic and personal touch to our event. We HIGHLY recommend Rachel & Terri for ANY event you may be considering.

Rachel and Terri were an absolute blessing to us! We knew when we met with them before the wedding that they were a perfect fit for us. They were professional, yet very laid back. They were open to playing a variety of genres. The best part was that they put together the playlist and adjusted the timing accordingly. I did not have to give them an exact, detailed timeline of events or need to know how many steps the aisle was. They adapted to the speed we were walking and the length of time each couple took walking down the aisle. It was such a burden off our chests knowing they would adjust as the ceremony went. I should mention that they are both amazingly talented!
