Anne Roos began playing the Celtic Harp in 1983. Her performance career started with Renaissance fairs, and she quickly became a favored soloist for many other types of events. She is especially popular for weddings and corporate events. Her concert performances attract international acclaim—Anne’s music has been featured on United Airlines Inflight Music Service.
Anne’s music repertoire spans traditional Celtic (Irish, Scottish, Welsh), English, folk, religious and secular, Early, Renaissance and classical music, to Broadway, contemporary modern popular movie music, Beatles, rock and jazz, and is virtually unlimited. She can easily provide the traditional “Canon in D” and “Here Comes the Bride” for a wedding processional, and play classic Frank Sinatra or Metallica at a reception. Her ability to faithfully play this broad range of musical styles has made here a popular and much sought after musician for all types of events.
Anne is also a published author and considered a wedding music specialist with her book "The Musician's Guide to Brides", published by Hal Leonard Books as a how-to manual for musicians who are interested in performing at weddings. She also counsels and mentors musicians and entrepreneurs to help them make a living by gigging. Anne’s latest book, also published by Hal Leonard Books, is “The Bride’s Guide to Musicians: Live Wedding Music Made Easy and Affordable”. This is the guide for those seeking to build live music into their wedding plans while saving money.
She has accepted invitations to perform for many dignitaries at home and abroad, including the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Ireland. Anne Roos is not only comfortable performing in front of a live audience, but also on camera and behind a microphone. She has appeared on a number of television programs and radio shows. Several resort vacation videos promoting travel to beautiful Lake Tahoe, where she resides, showcase Anne on the Celtic harp. She has been able to utilize her extensive knowledge of music as a Classical, Jazz, and World music announcer for National Public Radio.
