Fantastic! Lara is a wonderful musician and has the rare talent of knowing how to weave music and silence through an event, especially as people were speaking.

Lara was the harpist for our wedding at Kohl Mansion, and she was wonderful! We got in touch with her on TheBash, and she was easy to communicate with, and responded to our occasional questions in the months in between the contract & the wedding quickly. We had special songs requested for the processional and recessional, which she did a wonderful job of, and our guests loved the background music she provided before & after the ceremony. Definitely recommend Lara!

Lara played the harp during my wedding ceremony and was absolutely amazing! She was super easy to work with and was very responsive when I had questions prior to my wedding. She allowed me to choose specific songs that I love to play during my ceremony as well, which made it so much more special. The music was beautiful and I am so happy I chose Lara for my wedding ceremony. She is super talented and I would definitely recommend her!

I used The Bash to learn of harpists available in San Jose to play at my mother's memorial service and was contacted by 4 harpists. I selected Lara and would definitely hire her again. Her music set the tone and enhanced our memorial service, plus she was professional, accommodating, flexible, prompt and affordable. Thank you, Lara, for playing for us.

The music for my wedding. The music made my day magical, and the service was terrific. I would recommend this musician to any bride who wants to make their day spectacular. My husband and I are pleased, and if we could get married again, we would hire her.

Lara played at my Mom's funeral, and the music was so beautiful. The family requested a few specific songs, and Lara was kind enough to play them. We had a lot of compliments from family and friends how beautiful the music was. Thank you Lara for making my Mom's funeral a beautiful remembrance Barbara E.

Lara was extremely professional ... perfectly accommodating ... and remarkably talented ... She arrived early and played beautifully while adjusting to the volume and tone of the room ... Her presence made a difficult event (memorial service) so much more easy to get through ... We would be thrilled to recommend her to friends ... Thank you Lara ...

Lara was lovely, responsive, and thorough every step of the way. Her talent was huge and she had a gathering of people around her making sure they heard her versus going directly into the memorial service room. She was extra thoughtful with her coat and harp cover and she made sure she put them in a location that would not be disruptive at all when she left. It felt kind, attentive, and deeply sensitive. I am so glad she was available for our special event to honor my dad. I wish her the very best in her harp playing and using her talents for such a beautiful purpose. Warmly, Diane

She was a wonderful performer. She played beautifully. She took the time to know details about the services that would make it memorable by playing the music that would be special and appropriate for a funereal service. Many attendees complimented her playing. I will look forward to booking her again for another occasion.

Memorial ServiceReviewed on March 24, 2019From Oakland, CA

From booking to performance Lara was professional and easy to work with. I trusted her to play tunes that were appropriate for my mother’s service and she delivered in spades. If I had the need to hire a Celtic musician again, I would without hesitation hire her again.
