Ashley Lancz Toman began playing harp and studying music at the age of 14 in Traverse City, Michigan. Three years later she was accepted to the prestigious Eastman School of Music where she earned both Bachelor's and Master's degrees in harp performance and served as a harp teaching assistant.

Ashley's career as a freelance harpist has taken her all over the United States. She performed twice daily as the harpist in residence at Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Michigan for five seasons. Her group Harptallica, a Metallica tribute, has toured extensively. The group is a harp duo committed to expanding the accessibility and audience of the instrument. With Harptallica, she has made performance appearances on the WGN-TV and FOX networks as well as on various radio stations throughout the country.

Since moving to Louisiana, Ashley has appeared with the Louisiana Philharmonic, and Baton Rouge Symphony. She has recorded with Ani DiFranco, and is the harpist seen and heard in the Tarantino film "Django Unchained."

Ashley maintains a busy freelance schedule, performing for numerous wedding ceremonies and other events all over southeastern Louisiana. She currently performs every Sunday during brunch at the National World War II Museum in New Orleans at the Stage Door Canteen.

She resides in Baton Rouge.

From the start, Ashley was easy to work with; enthusiastic, accommodating, prompt, and charming. She arrived in New Orleans in plenty of time and was ready to roll when we and our150 guests paraded in behind the bagpiper from the chapel across the courtyard to have lunch. Her program was soothing and appealing, including everything we had asked for and much more. Everyone was talking. The harp provided a melodious background that nobody had to shout over. Besides all that, as several guests noted, in her long black dress with her long fair curly hair, she looks like a harpist. In short, lovely girl, exquisite instrument, beautiful music.

I unfortunately couldn't meet her because I was super busy and time was crunched but I did get to hear the music and it was beautiful! Everyone enjoyed it as well! Can't wait for final pics so I can see her in action :)

We hired Ashley for our 2/12/15 wedding in New Orleans. Everything about her contribution to our wedding was perfect. She is accomodating, prompt, responsive, flexible, lovely, and talented. She played for at least 30 straight minutes before the wedding without a break, played a bit during the wedding and play us all going out. She was ready and willing to play most any song we came up with and made very sound suggestions. She has a nice website with sampes of her music, but I want to tell you that those samples don't begin to represent the romance and magic that she brought to our wedding. Just perfect...thank you so much.
