Cornwall based harpist Ruth Wall performs on Concert harp, Celtic harp and Early harps at concerts, weddings and events in the UK and internationally. She has performed for HRH Prince of Wales and at venues including Royal Opera House, Holkham Hall, Gucci celebrations in Rome and Florence and for weddings and functions in venues including Guildhall London, Skibo Castle in Scotland and Hotel Tresanton in Cornwall.
Ruth’s extensive harp repertoire stems from her Highland roots to her classical training and love of new music. She performs as a harpist with artists including Goldfrapp and Kathryn Tickell and records for EMI, Mercury Music, Sony BMG and Universal.
At weddings I perform a vast range of classical, jazz and pop repertoire alongside beautiful airs from the Scottish Highlands and Ireland. I would be very happy to work out a play list which can include specific requests, or you are welcome to visit my home in Cornwall and listen to some of your music choices. Alternatively we can chat by phone or FaceTime. For a full repertoire list please contact me.
