Some musical suggestions for your wedding ceremony with the Light Duo:
…Start the proceedings with some gentle harp and guitar music as your guests arrive...
...Then a special piece as the bridal party walks down the isle... more gentle music during the signing of the register... followed by an uplifting piece as you walk out as husband and wife ...and some celebratory music for the pre-dinner or pre-lunch drinks.
...Then why not have some lyrical music from Harp, guitar (and Violin-optional) for the reception drawing influence from Ireland, Spain, South America and from Classical, Folk and Jazz.
We would love to hear from you!
Michael and Evri

Evripides is also the owner and producer at ‘Emotion Studios’ where he produces music for TV, Radio, Film and many other artists from all over the globe.
Since the age of five Evripides has studied mandolin, piano, clarinet, saxophone, guitar and bass and holds a bachelor of music from the University of Melbourne Victorian College of Arts, majoring in Classical and Jazz guitar Performance.
Influenced by the strong rhythms and melodies of a Mediterranean culture, the freedom of Jazz, the discipline and elegance of Classical and Flamenco styles of music, and his deep experiences as a long-time practicing meditator, he has found his 'sound', and fulfllment in expression, through his original compositions performed on a vast selection of multi string basses and guitars.
As a producer, arranger and performer he has worked with an amazing array of artists such as James Morrison, Jane Rutter, David Hirschfelder and many more. He has gained a reputation as an inventive and electrifying player who takes bass and guitar playing to the extreme through the innovative use of loops and electronic effects.
Michael Johnson has been composing and recording since 1976. Originally performing as a rock musician in Melbourne music venues, he later moved to utilising his skills as a multi instrumental performer, touring with a trio in Victoria and South Australia. Here he was introduced to the harp and never looked back....
He is the instigator of Lyrebird Music (the recording label) and Twilight Music (the concert series).
Michael plays various instruments but is probably best known for his work on the harp. His concerts and recordings feature this instrument but also include percussion, guitar, piano and various classical and world music instruments. Michael should be familiar to audiences throughout Australia. His compositions are regularly aired on national radio and television.
He has been the resident musician at a number of locations (Including Healesville Sanctuary). For over a decade Michael has been stationed at the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, performing in the “harp the Gardens” recitals and "Twilight Music" concerts, providing his music for thousands of overseas guests and visitors to the gardens.
As well as a concert performer, Michael has been working in the field of music for meditation. His tranquil harp music has been an integral part of the Mindfulness Music program at the Gawler Foundation for over twenty years.
He has performed alongside an eclectic combination of artists such as Tony Gould, Imogen Manins, David Jones, Wilber Wilde, Gary Young, Judy Jacques, Kavisha Mazzella, Victorian State Opera, James Morrison, Judith Durham, David Herschfelder, The Melbourne Welsh Male Choir, Jane Rutter, Suzanne Johnston, Donald Cant...
He has performed as a guest artist on many CDs but most notably on albums by David Jones & Graeham Goble (Founding member of the Little River Band).
Michael regularly performs as a solo artist, but also with groups and ensembles such as Light of the Moon and Time traveller.
