I am a harpist who lives in Dover Delaware and I play harp for weddings, receptions, cocktail hours and other festive occasions. I have been a professional harpist in Delaware for 14 years and I have a wealth of experience and material. I have played in churches, concert staqes, on beaches and even on top of a mountain in the Catskills. My amplifier is battery powered so I go where the event is and fill the space with music.

In addition to playing at hundreds of private events such as weddings and receptions, I have played at the Delaware Public Archives, First Night Dover, the Delmarva Folk Festival, the Rock Hall Maryland Festival, the Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts, Wilmington Public Library Concert Series and the Delaware Governor's Mansion.

I consider my role as musician to set the right tone for the event, whether it be a wedding, a cocktail hour, or a formal concert. I seek out tunes to play that convey the full power of the harp to "soothe the savage breast." Most of my material is historical in character, based on the harping traditions of Ireland and Scotland. But I do mix in contemporary melodies as well that convey inspirational feelings of joy and love. I often include special modern tunes in the set that are requested by my clients. (Yes, even "Stairway to Heaven" for one wedding!)

I look forward to talking with you and giving you a more detailed idea of what I can provide for your special event.

We had a wonderful Passover Seder and Mike made the event so much better. He was professional and on time. Our congregation is still talking about him. Thank you Mike for making our wonderful evening absolutely beautiful.
