About
With over a decade of experience performing at weddings, receptions, dinner parties, and church services, Ruth is a perfect choice for your special event. Ruth has a degree in harp performance from the University of North Texas and has performed as a soloist, orchestral harpist, and chamber artist across the United States. As a result, she has a wide variety of pieces in her repertoire to choose from, including Bruno Mars, Claude Debussy, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Elton John, Elvis Presley, George Gershwin, J.S. Bach, Lady Gaga, Rogers & Hammerstein, and Taylor Swift. Because she arranges most of her own songs, Ruth can usually incorporate any special music request you ask for. She can either perform alone or with other instruments, such as the violin or flute. Ruth works with you to come up with the perfect setting for your event, tailoring the music to each occasion.
