Deborah Shaw

Harpist, Pianist, Available for weddings, corporate events, parties and cocktail receptions.


I regularly provide harp and piano music at weddings within Edinburgh and surrounding areas. I have a broad setlist incorporating a selection of styles to include classical, traditional, jazz and pop / rock songs. I have excellent testimonials from wedded couples whom have used my services. My semi-grand harp looks and sounds beautiful and adds elegance to any room, and I have my own portable stage piano with excellent authentic piano sounds.

I can provide music for your ceremony, drinks reception, and piano vocal sets for your evening party. In the last year I have performed at Melville Castle (Edinburgh, Midlothian), Dundas Castle (South Queensferry, Edinburgh), Edinburgh Botanical Gardens, House for an Art Lover (Glasgow). Hilton Grosvenor Edinburgh, Glenskirlie Castle (Stirlingshire), Craigsansquahar House (Fife), Archerfield House (East Lothian) to name a few. I will liaise with you and your venue closely in the artistic and logistical planning of music for your wedding. I provide my own instruments (harp and piano) and amplification if required.

I have a broad and varied repertoire and can always find something to suit your personal taste. Choose to walk down the aisle to your favorite classical piece of music, love song, rock song – anything you choose!

My prices are competitive and there is a package available to suit every budget. Here are some of the ways music can feature as part of your wedding:-


Relaxing music as your guests arrive and take their seats on either harp or piano (classical, love songs, traditional music). Music as the bride walks into the room and down the aisle.

Music to support the ceremony (during the signing of the register, any hymns), and as the wedded couple make their exit.

Drinks reception

Background music whilst your guests mingle and take that long awaited sip of fizz! Choice of light jazz, pop / rock repertoire, classical music or a mixture. If you have a lot of guests, don’t worry, I can provide my own amplification for both piano and harp.

Evening reception

If you would like music for your evening reception I can sing and play piano vocal sets, mixing jazz with a mixture of well known songs if required. I can provide a list of songs so that your crowd can join in and sing along if the mood takes them.! This can be a perfect solution for smaller weddings where a full band would be too expensive or too noisy for a smaller space. I have a lot of experience performing in piano bars such as The Rat Pack in Edinburgh, and various piano bars in Scandinavia.
