About the Act:

VIOLINIST

Our Solo violinist is a professionally trained and versatile musician from a background of classical training and now, a seasoned professional in an array of styles. This makes him a standout violinist, in demand, and immersed within the music industry. He brings a modern and contemporary style to the wedding scene where he shines as a musician, tailoring each wedding to the client. Learning requests, composing bespoke arrangements, and offering a unique service as a musician to weddings.

GUITAR & VOCALS

As an addition to the violin, he offers an acoustic live lounge-style performance with guitar and vocals. His Northern Irish vocals offer character and charm, perfect for a chilled drinks reception.

LOOP-STATION

Using loop pedals and production technology as a feature of his performances, he delivers versatile Classical and Contemporary Pop music with an electronic twist. He 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.

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 out his availability now!

REVIEWS

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!

WEDDING CLIENT
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!

Androniki Pickett
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!
