One of the UK's most sought after harpists for weddings and events, playing everything from classical favourites, lively folk melodies to love songs. Emma Yates enjoys playing for weddings and events alongside teaching the harp and piano from her home music studio in York. Emma performs and teaches on both the celtic/folk harp and the larger pedal harp. Both instruments are popular for events, each having their own unique sound and look.
"Emma Yates is an amazing harpist, she played so beautifully at our wedding!! We particularly loved Pachelbel's Canon in D whilst signing the register and she even played 'You'll Never Walk Alone' while James was waiting for me to be fashionably late... (he had to sneak a bit of football into the day)"
Emma studied harp from the age of 8 and has been performing professionally for over 20 years. Emma is conveniently located for events in the heart of York city centre, and enjoys playing at York's top Wedding venues such as The Hospitium, Gray's Court Hotel, Merchant Adventurer's Hall and Merchant Taylors Hall. Emma also travels to events across the UK.
