"Classical and Pop electric violinist from Leeds ideal for wedding ceremony music and receptions. Solo violin music and acoustic guitarist available for hire at your next UK event. "

About the Act:

A professionally trained musician, our Solo Violinist layers up violin, acoustic guitar and vocals to create a symphony of sound using live looping technology. Whilst being a key element of his appeal, this also means that one musician can provide the sound of a full string quartet or band – offering a cost effective solution for those in love with the sound of a string quartet but on a limited budget. 

Unlike many Classical acts who use looping technology, the addition of an acoustic guitar gives our Solo Violinist his own distinct sound. It also enables him to brings Pop, Dance and Folk influences to a set list which brilliantly compliment the Classical playing on offer. Booking options include anything up to 2.5 hours of music for your drinks reception and special requests for your aisle music and wedding ceremony. You can even book our Solo Violinist fronting the awesome Mumford and Sons-style band, Emerald Skye.

Whether looking for a Classical musician to accompany you down the aisle, a contemporary performer to entertain your guests through their drinks reception, or someone to recreate one of your favourite pieces in a bespoke style, our Solo Violinist is what you’ve been looking for. His music can provide a beautiful, laid back atmosphere at your event and be tailored to suit your personal tastes. Get in touch to find our his availability now!

WEDDING CLIENT
The Solo Violinist performed at our recent wedding and he genuinely made the day for us. He was professional and he struck the right tone throughout making the whole atmosphere beautiful. His repertoire of songs were perfect and the mix of violin and guitar made for a lovely, relaxed feel to our wedding. Our guests loved him and are still raving about him. We would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for some music on their special day because ours certainly wouldn't have been the same without him!

We were so pleased we booked Solo Violinist for our wedding drinks. He was a superb performer and the repertoire was perfect for our guests. We had lots of compliments about his performance and felt that he was a great addition to the atmosphere of the day. Due to weather, we were inside for our celebrations and while we were concerned about the volume, he handled this brilliantly. Everyone could hear him but our guests could still chat with each other. Would happily recommend him!

Bride from a Wedding Ceremony
The Solo Violinist amazed every single guest with his playing during our ceremony. He even made quite a few of my guests, both male and female come to tears. Such a talented musician, sensitive to his surroundings, flexible in his approach, and exceptional in every way. PS thank you for playing whilst my wedding car broke down! We got there in the end. Thank you!
