Harp music is being increasingly incorporated into funerals, memorial services and life celebrations, gentle and serene or uplifting and smoothing Marie-France’s harp playing can be a great source of comfort as one bids farwell to a much loved family member or a friend.

Marie-France can provide low cost harp music for Funeral services at churches or crematoriums in and around the Bristol area. Fees from £80.
