String duo

Public liability insurance of £10 million

Atma duo bring popular music of your choice to your wedding, played in a beautiful, folky style on the cello and guitar. We can play for any part of the wedding, whether it be a special song to walk down the aisle to, or for whilst signing the register, or a selection of contemporary & classic songs to accompany the canapés, reception, or through dinner. Their music covers many eras and genres, from pop to rock and folk! We can also play background music as the guests are arriving, creating a relaxed and romantic atmosphere, which is particularly suited to a rustic barn wedding, but would equally suit a more elegant setting. We have a wide ranging repertoire of well known and loved songs. Particular pieces can be learned and arranged on request for your wedding, even if you don't see them on our set list, which is just a small sample. The duo are suitable for small and large spaces, indoor and outdoor, and have amplification when required. Atma Guitar & Cello Duo is made up of acclaimed acoustic guitarist David Ian Roberts, and classically-trained cellist, Kirsten Miller. A highly regarded folk guitarist, David Roberts has had his music played on Radio 2 and Radio 6 music. He has performed live concerts across the UK, and provided music for many weddings. His deft accompaniment to Kirsten's lead playing brings a warmth and lively rhythm to their full sounding arrangements. Kirsten was trained at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, and is an in demand session cellist & performer, She has great skill at playing the melodies of both popular and classical music, much of which she can improvise by ear. The "atma" in our name means soul or spirit.

Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

We are a guitar and cello duo, but we can also both be booked as soloists

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

Don't worry if the timings change slightly once you have booked us, or if things don't quite run to schedule on the day. However, please let us know in advance the length of time you would like us to play for, as this is a significant part of what makes up the quote.

How much time do you need to set up?

We need about 30 minutes to set up and do a quick sound check.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Yes absolutely!

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes. We just need two chairs and a plug socket if we're using amplification

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes. Request away!

Atma duo helped us out of a real sticky spot due to last minute changes to our wedding day because of covid! They were recommended to us by a friend and we honestly couldn’t be happier that covid did scupper our original music plans! From the get go Dave and Kirsten were at the end of the phone for me to discuss logistics and songs! They even learnt 2 songs for us to walk up and down the aisle to, very last minute but oh my gosh absolutely beautiful! These guys absolutely made our wedding day even more perfect than we could have imagined! Super reasonable price point, really friendly and professional duo! Highly recommend! You won’t be disappointed! Thank you guys!

Kirsten and David are both wonderful musicians. I have had the pleasure of watching them perform together and the atmosphere they create is magical - lots of great energy and soulful sounds, perfect for special events like weddings and other celebrations. Having worked with them in past, I know both are also flexible musicians and friendly, approachable people; I would therefore highly recommend them for your special day, in whatever form it may take.
