With an enchanting repertoire of Classical, Celtic, Renaissance and Medieval music, I have been performing professionally for over 15 years for weddings, memorials, parties, open houses, and Medieval-themed events. Beautiful, sophisticated and elegant, the gentle music of the Celtic harp makes an unforgettable addition to your ceremony or celebration, and I will work with you to select a program of music to complement your event. I hold a degree in Music and am past Chairman of the Board of the Bay Area Folk Harp Society.
My Bay Area clients and venues have included the City of American Canyon, the City of Alameda, the Fairmont Hotel, the Claremont Hotel, Macy's, and Crocker Galleria, and I have also performed in a variety of venues in the Northwest, Britain, Germany, and China. My music can be heard on many CDs and soundtracks for film and TV, including my solo CD Princess of Flowers. I can perform solo, as the duo Margaret & Kristoph (includes vocals, 12-string guitar, octave mandolin, and flute -- see Gigmasters listing), and in a trio with guitarist and violinist. My costume options include Medieval, Renaissance, and Celtic folk costume, in addition to modern formal dress.
Some unsolicited comments:
"I wanted to thank you again for blessing us with your incredible gift of music at our anniversary. Your music is so peaceful and beautiful and you were the ultimate professional." -Darren and Shelly

"When we were planning our wedding we weren't sure that we wanted music during the ceremony. After a lot of research and thought we decided to try calling Margaret Davis from her website. She was amazingly helpful, providing us with samples of her music both online and by mail. When we went to meet with her we didn't have an exact idea of what we wanted, and she listened to us and helped us choose our music. On the day of the ceremony she was invaluable. The ceremony started late (as they often do) and, without prompting, she played lovely music while the guests waited, and kept their restlessness at bay. When we were ready to start she played everything right on cue, lending a perfect complement to the outdoor setting. Many of the guests (some of them musicians themselves) came to us after the ceremony and commented on how beautiful and professional her performance was. Our ceremony was a special moment, and part of what made it so perfect was the music. We would very highly recommend Margaret Davis for your special day!" - Windy and Charles
