WEDDING INFORMATION:
Carol's RATES ARE REASONABLE and SHE WILL TRAVEL to your wedding destination (within 150 miles of Austin/Dallas/Ft. Worth; travel fee applies).

Carol plays a CUSTOM MADE HARP. Her harp tone is characterized as WARM, RICH, FULL SOUND. CAROL'S BEAUTIFUL HARP LOOKS LIKE AN ANTIQUE with tasteful gold leaves and vines painted on the soundboard.

Most brides do not realize that AN UN-AMPLIFIED HARP IS HARD TO HEAR! Most harpists only play acoustically or run an amp without proper knowledge of EQ resulting in a thin, brittle sound. CAROL PLAYS THROUGH AN AMPLIFIER and has many years of knowledge and experience running sound, thus creating a warm, beautiful, clear harp tone.

Carol also coordinates her gown/heels to the color theme of your wedding for a seemless look.

Thank You for considering Harpist Carol Tatum for your wedding or special event! *******.***

Everything was perfect! Carol was on time, professional and delivered a beautiful performance. The guests were truly impressed and enjoyed also chatting with Carol about her talent. She is a very pretty woman, inside and out, with an ethereal quality that lends itself well to playing the harp! I highly recommend Carol Tatum for your event too.
