McKenzie M.
Bridget was wonderful. She learned a song that I requested to be played as I walked down the aisle. When my wedding was canceled last year due to COVID, on the day my wedding would have been she thoughtfully sent me a video of her playing the song saying that she couldn't wait to play it in 2021 for us. When she arrived to our venue on September 11th she was early, and was great with her communication. She played beautifully and I couldn't have asked for a better harpist to play for us! I would absolutely recommend her!

Bridget is a talented and professional musician. She is easy to work with and responds promptly to any correspondence. I found her rates to be very competitive. Additionally I found having harp music at my function added elegance and style.

I have had several opportunities to work with Bridget regarding my VIP donor events for Utah Valley University. She is extremely exceptional with her talents, our guests always love having her play the harp for their events. I have even had several guests ask if she can be at future events because she play so beautifully! She is punctual and professional, I know that when I book her I can always count on her! Thank you Bridget for all you do!

  • What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

    Harps are sensitive to climate, and so venues should be able to accommodate that. Indoor venues are preferred in months with harsher weather. For more FAQ, visit my website's FAQ page at bjacksonharp.com
