Where to start? Abbie is such a talented musician and did a spectacular job setting the scene for our wedding. Her presence was as beautiful as her music. Abbie was easy to work with, communicated well, and was flexible. Abbie performed during our ceremony and then immediately again for our cocktail hour. During the cocktail hour, Abbie and our band did an impromptu jam session and it was truly the coolest thing. We can’t recommend Abbie enough. She is such a light and we hope that we’ll get to hear her play again.

Abbie Palmer’s harp performances at Vigilante Coffee in Hyattsville, MD have been nothing short of outstanding. In a short time span, Ms. Palmer has become a favorite of both customers and staff alike! Her beautiful renditions & professional demeanor have made her an absolutely pleasure to deal with and we look forward to having her again at our cafes. Highly recommend Ms. Palmer for any type of event seeking absolutely beautiful music delivered by a highly professional and gifted musician.

We had Abbie perform the National Anthem at a large scale sporting event and she was absolutely spectacular! She was very kind, professional, and most of all TALENTED!! The performance was such a treat for the fans and she certainly did the tune justice. She definitely brings the "wow" factor to any event. Truly one-of-a-kind! Can't recommend enough.
- Adam Samborn, events coordinator with Audi Field
Abbie's technical command, impressive ear, and unsurpassed ability to think on her feet, make her a reliable and rewarding musician to work with. What makes her a joy to work with, more than just about any musician I know, is how "game" she is. She's always up for anything, and in everything she adroitly finds her way in and makes herself at home, so that you cannot imagine doing what you're doing without her.

Abbie has played at our venue/restaurant/bar several times now. She is a fabulous musical artist. Her vocals accompanied by the harp are wonderful and always please our patrons. We’ve already scheduled her to perform next month and will do so often thereafter.

Abbie has been so great to work with. I am absolutely loving learning to play the harp her. She is always kind and constructive with feedback, and her instruction is really clear.

Abbie is passionate about being a music therapist and musician. I am pleased to have her work with my psychotherapy practice. She cares deeply about the goals and outcomes of her clients, and will go the extra distance to assure that her clients are taken of. She offers an array of services from in-person and virtual care. I highly recommend following her website abbiepalmer.com to see all her upcoming events.

I’ve been so lucky to see Abbie play many times due to working with her for three years and she is amazing on many levels! Musically so gifted, a great MC and music director, truly skilled music therapist and a true professional—thoughtful, timely and considerate! Abbie also brings a sense of lightness and wholeheartedness to all of her work as a performer and music therapist. She’s fearless on stage and brings her audience along for the ride! I’m a fan of both Abbie’s music and her character!

Abigail Palmer shines with talent and warmth! I have had the honor of working beside her in her role as a music therapist but have also enjoyed her performances. She has a natural patience and genuineness when working with patients as a music therapist and as a performer her natural talent on the harp touches the soul. Abbie is a musical delight!

Abbie Palmer is not only an exceptional harpist, but an excellent colleague. Her musicianship and skill lift up any group with whom she's working. As a solo artist she's creative and captivating. I try to hire Abbie as often as I can. Listen to her music. Hire her. She has music in her soul, and its expression is a gift to all who hear her.

Abbie is a consummate professional and an inspiring performer and teacher. I work with her in the music education field, and she's able to connect with students of all ages and create excitement around the process of learning. Adults also love working with Abbie, and her background as a music therapist gives her some special insights into the best way to approach every student uniquely. In addition to her musical talents, Abbie is a fantastic communicator, great at scheduling, and reliable. We can't say enough good things about Abbie!
