Marg Harper
a Tauranga musician who specializes in ambient music for wedding ceremonies and receptions, restaurants, small romantic occasions, large private and corporate functions and festivals.

Marg often performs on more than one instrument for an occasion e.g. Harp for a wedding ceremony then guitar and voice for the reception. She has a vast repertoire to draw from in many genres as both an instrumentalist and vocalist.

Her voice has been likened to Diana Krall and chocolate! A sophisticated deep warmth that cuts to the heart of each song. From smooth jazz and Latin standards to blues and contemporary, Spanish and French chanson accompanied by elegant arrangements on guitar or piano.
Beautiful arrangements of harp instrumentals: Classical, Celtic, South American and favourite love songs.

Marg recognises the importance of friends, family and conversation at occasions, keeping the music complementary rather than intrusive to your time together

Marg will discuss with you prior to event which instruments will appeal to you

Hi Pete,
We loved Marg Harper's performance and we got lots of wonderful feedback from our guests.
She was professional to deal with and we really appreciated her being honest and up-front about her needs before hand. On the day, she pretty much set up herself and just made it so easy for us. Her performance was magical during the ceremony and added a special touch to the wedding. During the evening, her music was perfect for the night. It sets the mood and just made the night extra special. We are still hearing people telling us how great the music was for the day. A big big thank you to her.
We thoroughly enjoyed her music and would highly recommended her to anyone.
Kind Regards,
Emily (Feng) & Ian

Hello Pete,
The performance Margaret Harper gave was exceptional. She played the
harp magically in the background and later the guitar.The two
songs(requested) sung in french were out of this world,- you could have
heard a pin drop! she is also a lovely lady and I would highly recommend
her .My mother had a 90th birthday to be remembered at Mills Reef
Winery Tauranga and it was enhanced by the beautiful music played by
Marg.Thanks for arranging it for me.
Best wishes,
Frances Lawson
