Deborah Shaw

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

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for performing at our wedding ceremony on Friday 13th April at the Principal Hotel Edinbugh George Street. Communication was swift and made me as a panicked bride feel completely at ease. Deborah was recommended to me as she has played at another family wedding and my mum and dad raved about her and said she was fabulous! Being the bride I only heard a few songs played, one of which Deborah learned for us and it really made the ceremony unique to us. Since the wedding our guests have all said how great the music was, having a mix of classical and pop was a perfect blend. Thank you so much for being part of our day! The Bolans x

Just a note to thank you for playing at our wedding on Saturday. It provided the perfect setting for our ceremony and drinks reception.

Thank you also for learning the tracks for us, they were just perfect! It was a dream to walk down the aisle to my favourite Bollywood track on the harp.

I'm only sorry I didn't get to hear more of you playing during the drinks reception.

Thank you once again.

I just wanted to personally thank you for playing at our wedding ceremony on the 11 April. It was nice to meet you and we were delighted with your music. Your Caledonia piece for walking down the aisle was perfect and very well received by all. I hope you had an enjoyable time and sorry you were left alone for a while in the living room!

We hosted an intimate wedding reception for our son last week. Deborah played both piano and harp. We can honestly say that the music made the day, so much so that we extended her playing time. The music was varied and all pieces were executed beautifully. We can wholeheartedly recommend her for your special event.

Deborah Shaw played the keyboard at my recent wedding reception. Deborah played with exceptional expertise and play a vast array of relevant music that fitted with every age group at the wedding. Deborah played a mixture of contemporary pop songs, alongside classical and jazz beats. Deborah was professional and efficient and is an exceptionally talented individual.

Your communication leading up the our wedding day was excellent and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to other friends or brides to be. With our sincere thanks.

Lindsay and Dan (House for and Art Lover, May 2014)

Many thanks to Deborah who played at our wedding evening reception in June 2013, we wanted a mix of chilled out back ground music/singing going onto more lively ambience for later in the night as the alcohol flowed and everyone was getting in the mood for dancing!. Deborah certainly met our expectations and is an excellent singer/pianist!!

Mrs and Mrs Carroll (Hilton Grosvenor Edinburgh, June 2013)

Thank you so much for playing for us on Saturday - it was simply beautiful!

Kerry (St. Cuthberts' Church Edinburgh, March 2014)

Debbie played piano at our wedding in July and did an amazing job. She sang and played the hymns during the service, which kept the guests' singing in tune! She played a range of love songs, while we were signing the register, including a gorgeous version of Fields of Gold, and then did a range of different songs during the drinks reception. It was lovely to have good quality, live music in the background while our guests were mingling. She helped make our day extra special and would recommend her for any special occasion!

Alison and Andrew Dunsmore (Craigsanquhar House, Cupar, July 2013)

Deborah performed classical music for our wedding ceremony, then some uplifting jazz for our drinks reception as well as some well known pop songs. All of our guests commented on the high quality of the music for our wedding. I could not imagine the music to have been any better, it was simply perfect. I would recommend Deborah for any occasion' .
