Mary provided the music at our church ceremony, and everything was perfect. She is a tremendous talent, and easy to work with – great sense of humor, responsive, etc. She narrowed down her vast repertory and provided a smaller number of selections based on what she thought would work best – and she was right. Everything flowed beautifully. I highly recommend her. Thank you, Mary!

Please consider Mary King for your special occasion. Mary provided a charming display of music on the harp that fit perfectly with the surroundings. The pure sound added a semblance of calm, quiet, peaceful elegance to our close personal gathering.
— Kathy (review from the Wedding Wire)

Mary was utterly fantastic. Her command of the Celtic Harp was hauntingly beautiful, her versatility fantastic and her charm, out of this world. Hope to have her for the anniversary.

Mary was such a joy to work with. She arrived early to the venue and played music as the guests arrived, during the ceremony and cocktail hour. Everyone loved it and it added such a great touch to the day! Can't say enough great things!!!:)

Thank you so much for being part of our day. It was wonderful to meet you. The music was absolutely beautiful and we received so many compliments on it. You were amazing throughout the entire process during booking, picking music and providing a beautiful addition to our ceremony.
— Karen C., April 15th, 2016 (wedding ceremony at Lake of Isles, North Stonington, CT)

Thank you so incredibly much for making my wedding the beautiful perfection that it was! Your playing made the setting breathtaking, and my husband loved hearing Fireflies during the recessional. I couldn't have been more thrilled. Your music captured the essence of love, spring, warmth, and giddiness that we wanted for the wedding. Thank you for your pivotal contribution and making the world a more beautiful place with your music and talent!

Mary was lovely and having her play at the wedding made the ceremony more elegant, romantic and our guests enjoyed her performance. Mary was amazing to work with and we would recommend her to our friends.
— Cindy S, 10/24/2015, Halifax, MA (quote from Gigmasters)

She is truly the best-highly recommend! She's very organized -- calls ahead, allows you to select songs, and contacts your venue ahead of time to make sure she is expected and where she can set up. Her music was so peaceful and relaxing and made a beautiful wedding! Thank you, Mary!
— Briana C, 08/22/2015, Westbrook, CT (quote from Gigmasters)

Thank you so much for your magical and "dreamy" harp music  for the annual Dream Night last week. The families are so appreciative and enjoy their special night at the Zoo. I look forward to continue working with you on future events!
— Beth, Special Events & Promotions Coordinator, Roger Williams Park Zoo

Mary was a pleasure to work with from the minute we booked her! She played beautifully and even learned a new song for the Bride to walk down to. She was an outstanding communicator and by the day of the event she felt more like a friend than someone we hired to play. If you want Harp music at your event, look no further.

Dear Mary,
Once again, thank you so much for gracing our art organization with your lovely Celtic harp. It adds so much to our openings and sets a lovely mood as well.

— Kaylee C, Wedding Ceremony in North Stonington, CT, 7/12/2013 (quote from Gigmasters)

Where do we start? I could not thank her enough for making our ceremony so memorable for us and for the many guests that complimented her on making the ceremony extra special with her music. Keep up the good work. Your music was beautiful and your personality made the whole process seamless. Thanks again for being able to play at our wedding. A day that will never be forgotten!!
— Melissa & Tom, 6/21/2014  (quote from Gigmasters)

Mary was an absolute joy & pleasure to work with. She was extremely sweet, professional and overly accommodating to make sure our event was exactly with way we wanted it. She played beautifully and made the atmosphere for our celebration very calm, soothing and overly enjoyable! I highly recommend her to anyone looking to have a harpist at an event. Overall, I give her 5+ stars!
