	I and the Consort that I preform with play at least once a week 
	and ALWAYS in costume. We play for High Teas, Dinner Parties and 
	what, and wherever we can for the experience. 
	We have come to the agreement that everyone has a persona within
	the group. 
	To awnser your question, wear somthing comfortable. Remember these
	people are there to chat, exchange recipes, and talk about there 
	gardens. Unless you wish to represent a wealthy Harpest, dress 
	comfortable and somewhat understated and let your talent woo them.
	Try to represent the music you are playing. Elegant, not Gawdy,
	soothing, not loud, you get the idea.
	About the hair, I'm sure you can find comfortable head cover.
	Good luck ;-{)}
	I hope this was some help.......................
