MUSIC MADE WITH LOVE

Welcome to Alyson McDowell, professional wedding and event pianist throughout the north and south of Ireland

‘The Girl With The Red Piano’ was born out of a love for music and its unique ability to fill our hearts with joy. My journey as a wedding pianist combines my creative spirit and my romantic soul, giving me the opportunity to travel throughout our Emerald Isle and celebrate some of the most beautiful love stories ever told.

My eclectic repertoire features some of the most beautiful music ever written and my relaxed, romantic style suits everything from intimate ceremonies and garden parties to cocktail receptions and wedding banquets.

'The Girl With The Red Piano' has become my trademark name in the wedding industry over the years thanks to my most striking and distinguishing feature - my red piano! But my love of music dates back long before my red piano came on the scene...
