Mairead Kelly Harpist


Mairead has been playing the harp for over twenty years and hold a BA in Arts/Music from UCC Cork. She has a wide repertoire and styles, such as Celtic traditional airs, religious hymns, folk or contemporary numbers to suit your theme or occasion and of course special requests.

Mairead provides music for weddings, whether for a church ceremony or non-religious civil ceremony. She is also available to play at drinks receptions and functions, corporate or private events in Ireland.


I had the hard task of organising a wedding from Australia, I was looking for someone to provide music at the ceremony for me and I have always loved the harp. Mairead was recommended to me by a friend, I emailed Mairead and she was very helpful and efficient in providing her details and music set lists to us and she also offered to learn any songs that were not on the list that we wanted. We booked Mairead straight away!

Our wedding was in August 2014 and we were lucky with the weather, we had a beautiful outdoor setting at Innishannon House Hotel. Mairead brought her own little amp which meant the music was not lost in the surroundings. She played a beautiful set list which fitted in perfectly with our outdoor wedding setting. All of my friends and family commented on how lovely the music was on the day! I would highly recommend Mairead for weddings or any other event.
