Clarinet and harp work hand and glove together. The sound emulates the famous Big Bands with the subtlety of the harp, making this a unique combination and one of a kind in Atlanta.

Jez Graham, nationally famous jazz pianist said about this duo, “Fabulous duo, love the interplay of the harp and clarinet. I especially like Susan’s bass lines and Don’s brilliance. Can’t wait to hear more.”
Jazz Harp and Clarinet with Eric Fontaine
Susan performs with an astonishing range of styles, covering blues, jazz, standards and classical with ease — on harp or piano. She performed with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra for many years.
She recently played harp as an extra for Tyler Perry Studios for a TV episode called “Reunited.” She collaborated with Francine Reed recording Stevie Wonder songs with the Jez Graham Trio, and currently plays with Harp Beat, a harp and guitar duo playing jazz and swing.
She has played jazz harp on the recording Harp + Light 1.
She’s also available for weddings and other events.
It was wild seeing the harp on stage (at the Family Dog restaurant/bar). If I had the room, I would book you today.
– Steve T, manager at the Family Dog
just wanted you to know what a pleasure it was to hear you play while I was packing up my harp. It is so easy to forget what how harp music is so relaxing and calming when we’re the ones behind the instrument. It was simply delightful to hear you and wish I could have stayed longer. Thought I’d send you this little note to tell you how much I enjoyed it and how beautiful your playing was.
– Nella Rigell (Atlanta harpist)
Hiring Susan for our retirement party was the icing on the cake of a wonderful evening. Everyone enjoyed her music and talent.

To play (jazz harp) like that you really have to feel it

Just wanted to thank you for the beautiful music today. You are so amazing and you really made all the difference in the world! Everyone was raving about your performance. Thanks so very much for all of your help, especially since I didn’t have a wedding coordinator. I really appreciate it. If you ever need a reference for your business, I would be happy to do it.
