About Barbara

Amazing Violinist experienced in playing solo for weddings, parties, drinks receptions and corporate events.
Violinist
Marlborough
Public liability insurance of £10 million
Verified profile

My name is Barbara and I am a professional violinist based in Marlborough. If you hear someone humming or singing around the corner: it is probably me. From a young age I was drawn to music. Once I picked up an instrument for the first time, there was no turning back. By high school, the dream of becoming a professional musician crystallised, and years of rehearsals and music lessons later, I am now the professional violinist I wanted to be. Classical training combined with a passion for all varieties of music gives me a wonderful tool to influence people's lives through sound, to inspire; to see people dance and smile. From pop, jazz, R&B to Broadway hits and classical pieces... I can create any kind of mood for your special day. If you are looking for a top musician who will be a pleasure to work with, please get in touch and schedule a meeting to tailor- make your musicial needs.

Of course. I bring my own instrument and PA system.

I will do my best to learn any song that you love and that is not included in my set list.

Barbara entertained our guests as they waited for the ceremony to begin and played as I walked down the aisle - a great mix of classical and modern songs to create a romantic atmosphere. She even learnt a Fleetwood Mac song for us which was much appreciated! Barbara is so lovely and super professional - highly recommended!

I booked Barbara for my wedding. I found her to be friendly, warm, extremely helpful and accommodating with my requests, and very professional throughout the process. Her talent is amazing, the emotion is felt with every note, and her genuine love for music shines through. My only regret is that I didn't book her for longer on the day! I would recommend Barbara for any event, as her ability to adapt to every genre is second to none. Thank you Barbara for making our day extra special x

We decided to book Barbara as the violinist for our wedding after falling in love with her playlist on YouTube. It was clear that she had a lot of experience, and we were impressed by the selection of songs she knew. She did a fantastic job on the day, and our guests have not stopped talking about how good she was. Aside from being a great violinist, she is also a lovely person.

Barbara was amazing, she was perfect for our event and everyone commented on how great she was. We requested a specific song at such short notice and she learnt it perfectly for us. We couldn’t be happier!
