Mia Theodoratus
Harpist — New York, New York
Electric and Acoustic Celtic Harp with vocals
Celtic harps offer a portable and refreshing entertainment for all sorts of gatherings including weddings, receptions and large events.  Besides just playing private events for over ten years I also play venues like the Knitting Factory, Caesar’s Place in Atlantic City, Tonic, Carnegie Hall and tour nationally with my electric harp and tabla (Indian drums) duo Jah-La.  The 2003 season was highlighted by performances in the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. Besides playing I also sing traditional folk songs and don’t mind learning songs for your occasion! If you are thinking bigger than just solo harp I also play with viola, flute or cello! For a bit livelier event I highly recommend having hand drums as well as harp!  miatheodoratus.com
