About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

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 "Thanks for helping make our wedding day magical. My dream was to have a harp at my wedding, and you helped make my dream come true." - KaTrina and Scott "We were so happy to have your beautiful music at our wedding celebration. Thank you for adding that dimension to the beautiful day. Perfect." - Sandra and Rik "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

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on September 19, 2015From Lafayette, CA

I was so impressed with Ms Davis and the easy way in which she confirmed my event and made it happen! I got so many rave reviews from my guests and it was such an important element to my day. I recommend Margaret highly and would use her again!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on September 25, 2010From Monterey, CA

I would like to say that Margaret Davis was the consummate professional at our wedding on September 25, 2010! She traveled here to Monterey, found our location, arrived on time, and played marvelously for our event. Her playing was beautiful, perfectly timed and suited to the atmosphere of our wedding, and the music made an already lovely event simply magical. I recommend her to anyone looking for a harpist in the Central Coast Bay Area. Our wedding was small and intimate, and her choice of music, her expressive playing, and her professionalism were just perfect! We loved her! Tracy and John Lloyd-Jones

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on October 31, 2013From San Francisco, CA

Margaret Davis is AMAZING! We had contracted with her to play the harp during our ceremony. Not only does she play the harp beautifully, she is VERY accomodating. I had asked her if she could play Come Away With Me, a piano ballad written by Norah Jones, Margaret had advised me that she could learn to play the song, but that it would sound quite different from the original song since it would be adapted for the harp. She played the song as I walked down the aisle. My (now) husband and I were so touched to hear our song played by her. If you want your ceremony to be even more elegant and beautiful, hire Margaret. You will NOT be disappointed.
