Harpist Mary Keller has played professionally on Nantucket Island for more than thirty years. She is a favorite among patrons of Company of the Cauldron, where she is featured during the summer season. Her music has graced more than 300 Nantucket weddings and she has performed for gallery openings, receptions, festivals, concerts, memorial services, christenings, intimate dinners, birthday parties...every sort of occasion imaginable on Nantucket.

Keller’s extensive repertoire includes Baroque, Classical and Renaissance music. Celtic music is one of her specialties, as are jazz standards, romantic selections, and opera excerpts. She can arrange harp ensemble bookings, such as harp with voice, cello, violin or flute.

In her years of playing on Nantucket, she has supplied harp music for virtually every organization and association on the isle, among them: The Nantucket Garden Club, the Nantucket Historical Association, the Nantucket Cottage Hospital, the Theater Workshop, the Nantucket Public School System, Sherborne Commons, Our Island Home, the Nantucket Wine Festival, Nantucket Preservation Institute, The Homestead, the Artists Association, the Nantucket Film Festival, the Maria Mitchell Association, Nantucket Preservation Trust, Hospice Care of Nantucket, A Safe Place, the Nantucket Atheneum, and Strong Wings Adventure School.

Please contact her for more information on rates, availability, and repertoire or to arrange a consultation with Mary and her 2 concert harps at her island home. You may request her list of "Harp Wedding Music Suggestions," a collection of ceremonial and traditional preludes, processional, and recessional selections.

Her bestselling CD recording "Music From our Heartstrings", made with cellist Mollie Glazer, is a varied warm collection of classical, sacred and folk tunes. It is available for $15 at island stores such as Bookworks and Nantucket Looms, or directly from Mary.
