About me

I have been playing the Irish harp from the age of eight and have gained over twenty years’ experience playing for various occasions throughout Yorkshire and Lancashire. I have competed at music festivals in Britain and Ireland and won much commendation, and held the All Britain Harp title in all age ranges.


I create in my playing a gentle presence and quiet dignity, which together with my friendly smile blend well with the spirit of my music.


The sound of the Irish harp can lend itself to a wedding in a memorable way. On that special day my harp playing can be a wonderful complement to the colour, the excitement and the joy of the loving encounter which is the marriage rite.


I play my harp at other events such as dinner parties; cocktails; birthdays; anniversaries; memorial events; concerts; receptions; reunions; funerals and corporate events, these events can all be graced by the gentle sound of accomplished harp music.


Whatever the occasion, I always try to complement it with that extra special mood and flavour that only lovely harp music can evoke.

“Berni plays exquisitely and with great style on the Irish harp. Whatever the event the sound of the Irish harp carries within itself every sweet mood and sensibility.”
