String duo
Hemel Hempstead
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Formed in 2001, the duo have enjoyed providing music at weddings, corporate functions and private parties. They have also given recitals across the UK and were lucky to premier Shifting Sands by Pat Livingstone. The duo were also featured in OK magazine for their performance at The Dorchester for the high profile ceremony of Gary Cockerill and Philip Turner. The cello duo offers a personable service, a wide variety of music, competitive rates and unlike the larger sized string quartet, the duo fits snugly in the most intimate settings.

Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

We work as a cello duo - our music is arranged especially for the two instruments. However, we work as solo artists too.

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

If the timings change in the run up to your event then just let us know. We always try and be as flexible as possible to ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible.

How much time do you need to set up?

We aim to arrive approximately 1 hour prior to our start time. This allows us to liaise with the event organiser, set up and have a quick warm up.

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

We are happy for you to choose the music from our repertoire. Or leave it to us and we'll choose the music to suit your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes!

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If you would like music not already on our rep list then we may be able to source it or do a special arrangement of the piece. We do charge an arrangement fee of £30 for each new piece. However, it's always worth asking us as there may be a chance we already know it.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The cello duo is a popular choice for weddings and the slightly more intimate party and drinks reception. The sonorous and dolcit tones of the instruments provide an elegant backdrop to your event.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have performed in hundreds of venues around the country. Including: Leeds Castle, Hatfield House, The Savoy London, The portrait Gallery, Stoke Park, The Landmark to name but a few! We have squeezed in to marquee's and set up on hay bails in a barn!

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

We have performed at charity events, product launches and a celebrity wedding.

Reviews

From customers:

Private B, 5 years ago

They were a real pleasure to have around and added to the party with their beautiful music. They both looked very elegant.

Sam S, 6 years ago

Thank you for playing at our wedding. You were both amazing and everyone I spoke to said how much they enjoyed listening to you.
