About Geraldine McMahon
Geraldine McMahon is an unusual and highly talented musician who can both sing and play the harp to the highest professional standard. Singing and playing the piano from an early age she later extended her musical talents by studying the concert harp. She won a scholarship to the Royal College of Music in London where she studied singing for three years, and won an award for a further year’s postgraduate study as well as several other prizes. Since then her career has taken her around the world including several years touring the United States where she appeared on numerous radio and television shows and released her first record album.
Geraldine was resident soloist, singing with her harp, at the medieval Bunratty Castle in Ireland and has also held residencies in several prestigious London hotels including The Savoy. She regularly plays for a wide variety of functions specialising in weddings and corporate receptions, as well as performing in concerts and cabarets.
Geraldine’s extensive repertoire consists of classical, folk music and arrangements of popular songs and show tunes, and she is happy to play the harp on its own, accompany her own singing, or sing with an appropriate accompaniment from, for example, a church organist. At weddings, she can perform both during the ceremony and during the reception if required.
Our quoted price is for her playing for about 75 minutes over a 90 minute period.
