Wendy Osborn, 10 June 2021, Harpist Bourne End

Julia's harp playing ranges from the dreamy and wistful, to the spirited and playful, She performs with a deftness and delicacy of touch. It is a real pleasure to sit back and enjoy the lyricism she brings to her musical repertoire.


Jeffrey Smith, 10 May 2021, Church Harpist Marlow

We were delighted that Julia was able to play the harp for us during the service at St John the Baptist Church, Little Marlow. The arrangement of "Amazing Grace" was perfect - and Julia's performance of The Matador's Lament gave a very special opportunity for us to listen and reflect. Julia is highly accomplished and a delight to watch as she plays the beautiful instrument which is the harp and we are already talking about the next time she can play to our congregation.
