What if my timings change after I've booked you?
It's usually not a problem and i'm happy to be flexible, if it was quite a big change it would just depend on the date, the location and details like that, also how much advance warning I have :-)
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
I have a carefully crafted Celtic music playlist I can pop in if time once set-up and during a break - unless just playing acoustically.
How much time do you need to set up?
30minutes or less!
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, usually the solo fiddle is done acoustically, particularly for a ceremony. But I also have a small speaker set-up for events that require it and a battery amp for playing outside.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Yes no problem at all!
