For nearly twenty years, I was the harp half of the harp and guitar duo Crosswynd, which played in resorts and hotels, at festivals and concerts throughout Nevada, California and New Mexico, including resort hotels like the Excalibur, Bally’s, MGM and the Monte Carlo in Las Vegas.

I returned to my native Canada in 2010 and now perform solo harp at corporate events, parties, weddings and in intimate concerts.

One of my great joys is performing for  fundraisers including this one, which raised money for an orphanage and relief work in Haiti.

If you are looking for the perfect music to grace your special event, I will be available in Ontario until September 30, 2017. After that, I will be relocating to South America, holding healing music, harp and writing retreats.


“We would like to thank you for your professionalism and the amazing music you played for us.  Thank you for learning the Jasmine song for our parents and the fact that you arrived ahead of time to set up.  You played an important role for our wedding, and we loved the fact that all the music flowed so well and your recommendation in music was perfect.”  Jessie and George

"Kate recently played at our wedding ceremony. The song choices and music were beautiful and were very much enjoyed by our guests. It added a romantic and unique flare to our day! Kate was very helpful in providing music suggestions and was able to cater to our unique ceremony. She is fantastic at her art. If you are looking beautiful and unique music, Kate is the way to go!"

Lynn is an accomplished guitarist and drummer, and he joins me for special events as our duo plays popular tunes from the 1960’s, 70’s and the eighties.

For a fun-filled event that is sure to have

everyone reminiscing about the best music of a generation, we do our own special versions of classics from

The Eagles

The Beatles

Simon & Garfunkel

Elton John

Bob Dylan

John Lennon

Carole King

Kenny Loggins


and many more including
