Welcome

Mary Groce (formerly Tooke; she recently reclaimed her maiden name) is a vocalist, harpist and songwriter. She performs with concert, Celtic, and strolling harps, and her music ranges from Italian, Irish, Scots, Welsh, French, German and Spanish to jazz, country, show, old-time standards and popular—including many of her own compositions. Her performances range from background instrumentals to school and retirement home programs to jazz clubs, concerts, restaurants and casinos.

Currently, Mary can be heard performing soothing instrumentals on her concert harp every Tuesday through Saturday evening at the historic William Penn Inn in Gwynedd, Pa., and she sings and plays for Sunday brunches at the chic Mansion on Main Street in Voorhees, NJ. She also performs regularly for several assisted living facilities in the Delaware Valley, where she entertains their residents, including dementia unit and bed-ridden patients.

Mary is available to perform for any event: an elegant soiree or a corporate conference, a commitment or wedding ceremony and reception, or a funeral luncheon. She and her harps are also available for concerts, restaurant entertainment, school and retirement home programs, and visits to bed-ridden patients. She can accompany her singing, or provide peaceful and soothing instrumentals on her harp.

Mary’s music is serene, festive, therapeutic, and perfect for any occasion.

 

Old Favorites

Mary finds that the oldest and most frail love her concert harp.
"It's very peaceful. One man hired me regularly to play for his mother with Alzheimer's disease. The music would be the one thing that would get through to her."
