If you have a question that is not listed here, please do not hesitate to get in touch via the contact page.
What areas do you cover?
Katharine will happily travel to wherever she is required in the South East of England.
The song that I wanted is not on the repertoire list, can I request it?
Yes of course. Katharine is happy to sing a variety of different songs from different genres. Katharine will do her best to make sure that you have the music you want on the day. Katharine may need to have a new arrangement sourced, sometimes this can take a little time to find the most appropriate music.
Please note that although Katharine has a wide vocal range, some songs may be unsuitable for her to sing.
How far in advance do I need to book ?
The sooner the better. Bookings work on a first come first served basis and we are currently taking bookings up to one year in advance. Katharine is in demand as a performer, so if you have an inquiry about availability, then please contact her. Unfortunately even if availability is given for a certain date, the booking is not confirmed until the deposit has been paid.
I’m hosting a big event – are you happy to sing with microphones?
Yes. Katharine has equipment suitable for most venues, however please give the expected size of the audience when you contact her.
What equipment do you use?
It depends on the venue. Yamaha Stagepas 400 Speakers and Mixer system, Roland Street Cube EX Stereo amplifier/speaker unit, Sure Beta 58A microphone.
Do I need to provide anything?
A place to change if Katharine is performing in costume, a parking space when arriving by car as she will have audio equipment to unload. 240V power socket.
Are you happy to perform outside?
Yes. As a singer Katharine can perform anywhere although extra amplification may be required outside.
However, to ensure that the electrical equipment does not get wet she would need to perform under a shelter such as a gazebo.
What happens if Katharine is ill on the day/unable to perform?
Very rarely singers are unable to perform because of respiratory tract infections or other illness. In the rare occasion that Katharine is unable to perform at an engagement, she will explore a mutually acceptable alternative or a refund will be made of the total fee paid to her.
In the event of severe weather conditions, heavy traffic, or other circumstances outside of Katharine’s control, it may sometimes not be safe or possible to travel. She will always look at every possible option to get to you and will give you as much notice as possible if she is at all concerned. Under these circumstances should she have to cancel the booking you would not have to pay any of the agreed fee.
To date this has never happened !
